Happy anniversary Jeanne

Happy anniversary, Beks

Right now I’m watching the FTV anniversary special: the Toronto-based fashion show has been on the air for 25 years, with millions of viewers tuning in. Take that, Dick Wolf.

Today, the FTV format seems a bit antiquated, considering most fashion consumers are getting their fix online, but this is a fun look back at all those shoulder pads. Supermooodels! I also appreciate its straight-up journalistic approach to fashion coverage; while Jeanne Beker does ooze personality, as a reporter she rarely gives opinions.

I don’t care what anyone says, I’m on Team J. If anyone wants to borrow her first autobiography, let me know. She has another one coming out next year, plus her own collection at The Bay. Apparently Beks doesn’t sleep…
