 Tim Gunn Biography

Tim Gunn is co-host and mentor of Lifetime’s “Project Runway.” In addition, he is Fashion Dean at Fifth & Pacific, where he is responsible for attracting, retaining and developing the creative talent within the portfolio of brands.

Prior to joining the company, 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 24 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. He has written articles for Elle, Seventeen, People, US Weekly and Fortune and has a monthly feature in People Style Watch and Marie Claire. He 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 served as co-host of the six-time Emmy-nominated “Project Runway,” a reality-based fashion design incubator, the eighth season of which broke all previous seasons’ ratings records. “Project Runway” received GLAAD Media Awards in 2007 and 2011 and a Peabody Award in 2008. He hosted the show for 16 seasons.

Gunn has made cameo appearances on the television shows “Ugly Betty,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Drop Dead Diva” and “Gossip Girl.” He also made a cameo appearance in "Sex and the City 2" and played an executive assistant at a cosmetics company in "The Smurfs."

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

Additionally, Gunn’s wisdom and wit has been captured in the Atari “Project Runway” video game, which will put players in the role of an aspiring fashion designer.
