Tim Gunn Makes It Work

“There are things that one can do to get what one wants, but it requires work, it requires tenacity, and it requires an incredible amount of passion about what you do and how you do it.” - Tim Gunn

The fifth season of Project Runway premieres on Bravo tonight, and Tim Gunn will be back to mentor the designers. On the show, he is known for his impeccable taste and candid critiques of the designers work. Fans of the show look forward to seeing Gunn’s reactions to the designers' outfits, and the interesting descriptions he uses while assessing some of the more outlandish creations. Gunn is currently the Chief Creative Officer for Liz Claiborne Inc., and previously spent 25 years at Parsons The New School for Design, where he served as the chair of fashion design since 2000.

In 2006, Gunn gave the keynote address at "Glamour In The City," an event which raised funds to support the not-for-profit organization, Glamour Gals. eClips was there to capture his remarks about his background and experiences with Parsons and Project Runway.

Viewers of Project Runway know that Gunn often recites his famous catchphrase “make it work.” In this clip, Gunn explains how the phrase evolved, and where the idea of make it work comes from.
