The lovable Project Runway co-host, Tim Gunn, graced metro-Detroiters with a fashion show under Liz Claiborne Inc. presenting fall wear from Juicy Couture, Kate Spade NY, & Lucky Brand Jeans. Of course, I come in extremely fashionably late, so I was only able to capture the Q&A portion. As the Somerset audience sought advice from the fashion guru, Tim Gunn gave brutally honest answers, only what we would only expect from the Tim we know & love.

Tim gave simple fashion advice such as what to wear this fall at your age, to more serious tones with how to approach a fashion career. One of the pieces of advice that Mr. Gunn stated while discussing a career in fashion with an aspiring designer was along the lines of “Unless fashion is your total life, where you couldn’t do anything else outside of it, don’t do it.” (paraphrased)

See our friends at Glamorous Moms for more thorough coverage, being that they came early enough to see the entire show ;)
