Tim Gunn on Project Runway and His New Gig

Posted on

It’s official: Tim Gunn will make it work for another season of Project Runway. “Definitely,” says Gunn, on whether he’s returning for season four of the hit reality show. “The contract isn’t done, but it will be. They’d have to beat me away with clubs, to be honest.” One gig that is ending, however, is his post as dean of Parson’s fashion department — Gunn is moving on to become creative director of Liz Claiborne. “I feel the lion’s share of what I really could achieve [at Parsons], I did,” he says. “I’ve been in academia for 29 years, so now I get to take all that great knowledge and apply it to the real world, which I’m thrilled about because I always love a challenge… I’m really eager to roll up my sleeves and get into the more basic Liz brands because they reach such a huge audience.”
