Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Sophisticated, silver haired design guru Tim Gunn became an unlikely breakout celebrity at the age of 51 when he debuted as the fashion mentor on Bravo's reality fashion design contest, "Project Runway" (2004- ). The urbane, dryly witty man in black was previously known in academic design circles for his 25-plus years at Parsons The New School for Design in New York, a premier institution for art and design. But it was his presence as the stern but lovable guide to the fashion boot campers on "Project Runway" that turned him into a recognizable personality and a respected tastemaker for the masses. In the wake of Gunn's "Runway" success, he authored A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style and was granted his own spin-off show, "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style" (Bravo, 2007- ).
