International fashion icon Jeanne Beker dishes on her life on and off the runway

More than 30 years ago, Jeanne Beker set out to live a life that was not just great, but extraordinary. In Finding Myself in Fashion, she recalls some of the high and low points of the turbulent past decade. Personally, she dealt with heartbreak (the end of her marriage) and rediscovered romance.

Professionally, she suffered setbacks that became learning experiences leading to new career paths. She travelled the world with FQ Magazine; witnessed epic events and conducted intimate interviews as a fashion reporter; launched her own clothes labels; wrote newspaper columns; and hosted or appeared on innumerable television shows. Through it all, both at home and at work, she stuck to her youthful resolution. This is Jeanne's candid account of a life lived to the max.

JEANNE BEKER pioneered the groundbreaking and award-winning The NewMusic and later hosted Fashion Television. She was the editor-in-chief for FQ and SIR Magazine and a regular featured columnist with The Globe and Mail. She is also a documentary producer and published author. Her books are The Big Night Out, Passion for Fashion: Career...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice, Light Reading If you're familiar with Jeanne and a former fan of Fashion Television, then this is a mildly entertaining and pleasantly eye-opening read. Finding Myself in Fashion isn't a wild page turner, but it's been amusing and at times quite interesting to learn about Ms. Beker's growth in the Canadian fashion industry. The downside is that the events of her life aren't really organized in any particular way. It's a lot of back and forth through the years, and I think it might have been more engaging had the book been better streamlined. Beyond that, this series of vignettes begets nice, light reading that you can take a break from and come back to at a later date. A good one for the beach!
