This documentation would not be complete if I did not mention Fashion Television and Fashion File. Most people do not know that it was a Canadian network (CityTV) that pioneered the idea of producing a special interest show focused on fashion. Long before Next Top Model and Project Runway , there was Jeanne Beker's Fashion Television.
Younger generation might also not know that style.com's Tim Blanks was the hots of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Fashion File. A show that was internationally syndicated and was well respected until Mr Blank's departure. Once his replacement came via a reality television competition the show lacked its air of sophistication and insight; needless to say it came to an end.
