I just had to take an unscheduled break from the series of posts that I've been writing when I found this video.
I happen to think that Tim Gunn is one of the most interesting voices in the world of style. He's the Chair of the Department of Fashion Designs at Parsons, and is best known for his work on the hit show Project Runway. His book Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste, and Style is just that and then some, and is currently one of my favorite books on the subject.
This interview is with SuChin Pak. It was done a while back, but that does not diminish in any way the fun of getting a more personal glimpse into this style guru's life and philosophy. The interview runs about twenty minutes, however the bright spot occurs within the first five minutes. When asked about his personal philosophy of style, Tim Gunn replies:
We need to understand who we are and how we want to be perceived, and dress for that particular person...for that role...I mean, in our own way we play a role in life.
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Here's the video. Enjoy!
And here's his book:
See you next time...same blog time...same blog channel....
