Canadian fashion icon, Globe & Mail columnist and former host of Fashion Television, Jeanne Beker will be this year's special guest at the Epoch Fashion Show at NSCAD's Port Campus on April 16 (7pm). The runway will debut the spring collections of senior NSCAD Textile/Fashion students, including Maggie MacCormick, Cai Ripley, Leanne Hansen and a dozen more. 

“I feel this incredible responsibility to encourage this next generation of emerging designers. It’s such a different time now and it’s tough,” Beker says in a press release for the event. “I want to be there to offer my support and applaud innovation.” For decades, Beker has been at the forefront of Canadian fashion journalism and reporting, including 27 years as host of Fashion Television, the author of five style books and three seasons as a judge on Canada's Next Top Model.

Tickets are on sale nowEpoch is billed as two events in one. The Port Campus will feature a 100-foot runway for the collection walk ($20 general/$10 students and unwaged) and a cash-bar. The waterside studios overlooking George's Island will feature a separate runway, complimentary refreshments, gifts, door prizes and a VIP party with the designers, models and Beker ($100). I can't wait; I've been obsessed with Beker since 1993.
