Retail Insider’s Editor-in-Chief Craig Patterson recently interviewed fashion icon Jeanne Beker in a two-part podcast. Ms. Beker was host of Fashion Television between the years 1985 and 2012 and the conversation includes a discussion of some of the most memorable moments, including exclusively announcing the retirement of iconic fashion designer Valentino.
Jeanne Beker captured the hearts and minds of Canadians by showcasing a glamorous world that Fashion Television also aimed to make accessible to the masses. Fast forward today and we see a democratization of designer brands in Canada and beyond.
