Q&A with Tim Gunn
Liz Claiborne Inc. and Project Runway’s Tim Gunn chats with the Current about the “Lucky You Runway Contest,”
Published: October 5, 2011
Can you tell me who your favorite fashion designer is on a grand scale?
Oh easy. Easy, easy, easy. The person who I have the greatest respect and affection and she is dynamic and charismatic and full of sex appeal … and she is the president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America — Diane von Fürstenberg.
I love her, too. I think I’ve taken up more of your time than I was allotted. But I want to thank you very much.
Well I appreciate your time.
And I will see you out at La Cantera.
Oh wonderful, I look forward to it.
“Lucky You Runway Contest”
Open casting: Free; 4-8pm Thu, Oct 6; Lucky Brand Jeans Shop, 15900 La Cantera Pkwy, (210) 877-9655, luckybrand.com.

*Gunn has joked that he’s in a witness protection program after infuriating Vogue editor Anna Wintour by including an anecdote in Gunn’s Golden Rules about her being carried down five flights of stairs by bodyguards.
