QUOTED: Jeanne Beker announces that Fashion Television has ceased production

So surreal. This dream is over: after 27 glorious years, FT production ceased today. So sad to see some of my closest colleagues move on.

—Jeanne Beker announcing on Twitter moments ago that Fashion Television has been cancelled. It’s a pretty sad day, considering the show has been such an institution, exposing children and adults to the likes of Yves St. Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld and more. Until executive producers Jay Levine and Howard Brull comment on the situation and further Beker’s claim that the brand will evolve, it seems to be a safe bet that this YouTube video will get at least one million new hits in the next hour.
