TORONTO - Toronto-raised style guru Joe Zee will share candid tales from the fashion world in his upcoming memoir.

"That's What Fashion Is: Lessons and Stories from My Non-Stop, Mostly Glamorous Life in Style" is scheduled for release on Oct. 13.

Publisher St. Martin's Press says the "funny and frank book" will see Zee let readers in on "tales, tricks and tips previously known only to the fashion elite."

The U.S.-based Zee is editor-in-chief of digital magazine Yahoo Style. He is also an acclaimed stylist, fashion journalist and producer.

He started his career at Allure Magazine and served as fashion editor at W Magazine and creative director of Elle Magazine.

He has been a sought-after stylist, from print and TV campaigns to photo shoots with A-listers like Jennifer Lopez.

Zee also helped guide struggling designers in the Sundance Channel series "All on the Line."

Zee returned to his hometown of Toronto in January to host the Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards, which honours homegrown talent within the arts and fashion community.

He was recognized with the vanguard award, which recognizes Canadians who have brought international attention to the fashion industry.

Adding to his already stacked schedule, Zee will co-host "The F.A.B Life" which is slated to debut this fall. The ABC lifestyles program will also feature supermodels Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teigen.
