Girl(s) you need to know: Your Influence Awards Travel finalists

18 August 2018
By Fashion Quarterly

At Miss FQ, we’re all about making bold moves which is why we’ve teamed up with Revlon for our annual Influence Awards.

As you know, there’s more to having ‘influence’ than being an ‘influencer’ and this year we are shining a light on awesome New Zealanders doing amazing things, both on and off the ‘gram.

Ready to meet your Travel (brought to you by American Airlines) finalists?

‘Life-changing’ is how one nominee describes Carmen Huter’s photos – and, we’d have to agree. Carmen uses Instagram to showcase her travels and keeps reviews realistic and honest in her stories with something new to learn every day.
