Tim Gunn takes fashion forward approach to annual leadership lecture Sept. 24

Tim Gunn, cohost of the fashion design show Project Runway, is known for pushing young designers to reach their full potential and “make it work.” His motivation methods will be on full display at the 2015 Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureship in Values and Ethics.

“The Delta Gamma MU chapter is super excited to be hosting Tim Gunn for this year’s lectureship, because his wise words can relate to everyone not only those with a fashion eye,” said Shelby Dunn, current Delta Gamma member.

Gunn’s lecture will take place in Jesse Auditorium on September 24 at 7:30 p.m.

Gunn has held many other roles in the fashion industry. He was Chief Creative Officer for Liz Claiborne Inc. then became a faculty member at the Parsons School of Design in New York.

Not only has Gunn succeeded in the fashion industry, he has also written four books. His latest is, Tim Gunn: The Natty Professor: A Master Class on Mentoring. Motivating and Making It Work.

Gunn’s speech will have insights from his time in the fashion industry and his time with Project Runway, including lessons he has learned from a variety of his professional experiences, mentoring and more.

“I am personally excited to see how Tim Gunn made it in the fashion world and how his life lessons can be a lesson for all of us,” Dunn said.

The event is free to students with student ID and $20 for the public.

Tickets are available at the MSA/GPC Box Office.
