A very special achievement award was also given during the evening. Fashion Television host and Canadian icon Jeanne Beker was honoured for her contribution to fashion and extraordinary career. Joe Mimran handed her the award.

If you know me, you probably are aware that Jeanne is one of the people I look up to the most. She’s also the one who made me want to become a fashion journalist, so I can’t tell you how happy I was to see her receive this honour!

After her win, I interviewed her for FashioNation.TV in the winners lounge! I can’t wait to show you the result, but in the meantime… here’s a souvenir from this privileged moment!
