When I first started thinking of launching my new series, Boss Babes, I knew that I had to get Kinya involved. She is such a dynamic force and everything you think of when you think of a boss babe. This is an episode that you can't afford to miss if you are an aspiring entertainment media entrepreneur.
Kinya is the founder and editor-in-chief of STYLE & SOCIETY Magazine. A style influencer, TV host, entrepreneur and fashion expert with a major passion for all things communications-driven, she launched the Los Angeles-based online publication as a platform to share the best of entertainment, fashion, lifestyle, travel, food and red carpet events globally.
Kinya is also co-executive producer and TV host of “The StyleList,” a TV series delivering the latest fashion, trends, travel and pop culture in a fast-paced and entertaining format on ONX, an online platform featuring the best in video content for the multicultural millennial. Both a tastemaker and award-winning content creator, she has traveled around the globe working with brands, hotels, and tourism boards on special events, editorial coverage and influencer programs.
A rising fashion icon, Kinya was nominated for the 2017 Los Angeles Business Journal Fashion Award in the Influencer / Trendsetter category for her work with STYLE & SOCIETY. The awards acknowledge the top apparel companies and individuals that drive tremendous economic growth in Los Angeles. Kinya also joined Los Angeles Fashion Week (LAFW) as a media partner for the spring/summer 2018 season, where she co-hosted the LAFW red carpet influencer kickoff event and the LAFW Opening Night Gala. Additionally, Kinya is an Influencer for StyleCon, an annual conference celebrating beauty and fashion.
