After a busy Friday afternoon seeing what some of our favourite collections (Joie, Robert Rodriguez, Laundry and more) were offering for holiday 2012, we were famished. We stopped at one of Toronto’s most popular restaurants, Terroni, for a bite to eat. What an absolute thrill to see Jeanne Beker at a nearby table! We mustered our courage and introduced ourselves. She was so obliging…resulting in a brief conversation and a fantastic photo op! It was truly a privilege to meet such a fashion icon! With recent news that Fashion Television has suspended production, we pay homage to a woman who has brought the world of fashion to Canadian households for over a quarter century.
