After 27 years and thousands of shows,
ceased production last month. Airing in over 100 countries around the world, the Canadian-based production's mix of runway coverage and tongue-in-cheek behind-the-scenes interviews was, for its time, so innovative and addictive that it influenced an entire generation of fashion reporters, writers, and bloggers (Refinery29 included).
How do you feel about having had a hand in changing that?
"It’s really incredible how fashion has opened up since we started bringing cameras backstage. There’s been this whole media explosion and people have started to become their own journalists and their own editors — which is great to see. Fashion has always been important to women. But now, it’s even more of a mode of self expression. It’s become so democratized."
