Bell Media’s FashionTelevisionChannel
Jeanne Beker is one of the most iconic and influential women in the fashion industry, both here in Canada and around the world. Jeanne is currently host of Bell Media’s FashionTelevisionChannel – Canada’s first and only 24-hour channel dedicated to fashion, beauty and design. Host of Canada’s leading fashion series FASHION TELEVISION for 27 years, Jeanne is also a contributing editor for The Toronto Star, a columnist for Metro, a published author of five books (the latest two released in Spring 2011 – Finding Myself in Fashion and Strutting It: The Grit Behind The Glamour) and a regular style correspondent for CANADA AM and ETALK. Jeanne also added a dose of style to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics with regular fashion segments for CTV and launched an exclusive clothing line titled “Edit by Jeanne Beker” available at The Bay stores across Canada. Last year, Jeanne travelled to London, England as a CTV Royal expert covering all things fashion as the world tuned in to watch William and Kate tie the knot at the Royal Wedding on April 29, 2011.”
