TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2007) -

Attention: Lifestyle, Fashion and Entertainment Editors

What began as a quarterly supplement to Toronto Life Magazine in the fall of 1977, FASHION Magazine is poised to turn 30 years old this month. Hitting newsstands across Canada on October 22, FASHION's anniversary issue is a 300-page collector's edition celebrating 30 years of style. Three Canadian stunners grace this issue's cover: Julia Dunstall, Heather Marks and Meghan Collison.

"When we started to plan this anniversary issue and discuss what really stays with people when it comes to fashion, we kept coming back to the models. Those beautiful creatures who bring fashion to life," says Ceri Marsh, Editor-in-Chief of FASHION Magazine." Canadian models are the hottest girls in the business. At FASHION we've always known it - since our launch 30 years ago, we've championed Canadian beauties."

The result is a stunning 30-page portfolio: a salute to 37 Canadian models we love - some veterans, some brand new - models who have appeared in FASHION and given the magazine its face.
