FashionTelevision, also known as FT, is a Canadian-produced special interest show focusing on fashion. The show,created by Jay Levine in 1985 is hosted by Jeanne Beker

The program was originally a local production of CITY-TV Toronto, the original Citytv station. Its popularity there led it to eventually be carried across Canada on various channels owned by CHUM Limited, the station's owner, and later spawning its own specialty cable channel, FashionTelevisionChannel. The show was also broadcast in syndication for many years on E! and sister network style in the United States, and continues to air in many parts of Europe, making Beker a very recognizable person in the fashion world.

The show's theme song is "Obsession" by the group Animotion.

CTV's parent company, CTVglobemedia bought out CHUM in June 2007. Citytv, which remained the nominal producer of the show throughout its history, was sold to Rogers Communications; however, because CTVglobemedia kept the spinoff channel, it was also entitled to the rights to the show itself. FT's terrestrial broadcasts moved from Citytv to the CTV network in January 2008.
