Women on Top: Jeanne Beker – Fashion Icon (2006)
Milan, New York, London and Paris: everyone in Fashion knows Jeanne Beker and her distinctive laugh. Jeanne had an unassuming beginning growing up in the suburbs of Indiana. Studying theatre and mime she had an unlikely start in radio. With such a beginning she was not CityTV’s first choice for host of Fashion Television. Seeing what she wanted and pursuing it relentlessly, Jeanne landed her dream career.
As a roving fashionista, Jeanne became the eyes and the ears of the audience. In her positions, Jeanne reinvented fashion reporting and built Fashion Television into a worldwide phenomenon. Some will say that she changed our view of fashion itself. In addition, Jeanne has written books, designed a line of clothing, presides as Editor-in-Chief of FQ Magazine and writes a newspaper column.
