Tim Gunn

Mentor

Tim Gunn is the Emmy winning co-host and mentor for the 14 seasons of Lifetime’s “Project Runway,” where he also serves as one of the show’s producers. He and co-host Heidi Klum won the 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality Competition Program, nabbing the award after his first nomination. In addition to his television prowess, he served as Fashion Dean at Fifth & Pacific, where he was responsible for attracting, retaining and developing the creative talent within the portfolio of brands.

 

Prior to his office at Fifth & Pacific, he was the Chief Creative Officer at Liz Claiborne Inc. Gunn served as a member of the administration and faculty at Parsons School of Design for 29 years and has a rich and deep history with the institution. In August 2000, Gunn was appointed Chair of the Department of Fashion Design at Parsons with the charge of retooling and invigorating the curriculum for the 21st century. Under his direction, the department was repositioned as the indisputable leader in fashion design education in America and as one of only a handful of leading programs in the world. Upon leaving Parsons, Gunn received the title of Honorary Chair of Fashion Design at the school. In addition, Liz Claiborne, Inc. endowed a scholarship in his name.

 

Gunn has lectured widely on fashion and lifestyle design and, especially, Parsons’ profound role in putting America on the global design map. His interviews have appeared in a wide range of publications, from Newsweek and The New York Times to Entertainment Weekly and Martha Stewart Living, as well as Women’s Wear Daily, Fortune and Fast Company. In 2009 he delivered the keynote at Harvard Business School’s Conference on Luxury Retail in 2009. He has also covered the red carpet at the Academy Awards, Emmy Awards and Golden Globes for "The Today Show" and "Entertainment Tonight," and he co-hosted the Official Oscar Red Carpet Pre-Show in 2009 and 2011 for ABC. Gunn is also a New York Times Best Selling Author penning Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style, Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Marking It Work, and Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet. His most recent book, Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor: A Master Class on Mentoring, Motivating, and Making it Work was released in March 2015.

 

He has written articles for Elle, Seventeen, People, US Weekly and Fortune and has a monthly feature in People Style Watch and Marie Claire. The now 60 year-old was named one of People magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive” in 2006. Finally, Marvel comics made him a superhero in their 2009 revival of Models, Inc. with a special feature, “Loaded Gunn,” in which he dons the Iron Man armor to fight crimes against fashion.

 

Gunn serves as co-host of the multiple-time Emmy-nominated "Project Runway," a reality-based fashion design incubator, which has received GLAAD Media Awards in 2007 and 2011 and a Peabody Award in 2008.

 

In addition to his work on “Project Runway,” Tim also served as the host of “Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style” which aired on BRAVO (2007-2008).

 

Currently, Gunn voices the character “Baileywick” on Disney Channel’s hit animated series “Sofia the First.” He has also made cameo appearances on the television shows "Ugly Betty," "How I Met Your Mother," "Drop Dead Diva" and "Gossip Girl” as well as feature films "Sex and the City 2" and played an executive assistant at a cosmetics company in "The Smurfs Movie."

 

Gunn gives a good deal of his time to charitable organizations, especially those associated with domestic violence, AIDS awareness and GLBT issues. Those organizations include the National Domestic Violence Hotline, GMHC, the Hetrick-Martin Institute and Bailey House.

 

He resides in New York City.
