Tim Gunn in Austin on Saturday
Famous Fashion Design Guru hosts contest
Tim Gunn, fashion design guru and honestly blunt host of "Project Runway" is coming to Austin to host the Lucky You Runway Contest featuring the spring 2012 Lucky Brand Jeans collection on Saturday. The runway show features real Austin models chosen at a casting call today, followed by Saturday's live show at Barton Creek Square.
Gunn is also chief creative officer of Fifth & Pacific, (formerly Liz Claiborne Inc.) the company that owns Lucky Brand Jeans.
He told the Austin American Statesman "We have a certain responsibility, in terms of respect for ourselves and respect for the world, to present ourselves a certain way when we leave our house, When you're inside, I don't care how you look, you can walk around in pajamas for all I care." and "A trend is only good if it works for you," he says.
