Turns out, his book is actually quite fabulous, and I recommend!
But he is even NICER than I had already preconceived! Absolutely the sweetest gentleman! I made a new friend in line, a middle aged woman, we'll call her.. Tasha. She was gracious enough to hold my spot while I relieved my toddler sized bladder. And we chatted quite a bit. Turns out this woman was a style consultant.. and that would explain my love for her jacket, shirt, pants and shoes. Style like that was not of the ordinary, everyday Jane.
|yes, that's me and Tim Gunn!|
|Tim & I, having a moment..|
But, anyway, I had gone up to meet Tim finally and we chatted briefly, but he took time to take a picture and encourage me in my dreams of being the fashion industry. He asked me about school, and I said it was a lot of work, hard work. He replied, "Good, it should be. Make it work." and smiled. He gave me a hug and said, "I'll see you in the industry!" and I walked off the platform as Tasha got her book signed. I was worried this would be an impersonal signing, but he was the most polite well mannered person I had ever met! And funny too!
Here are some snipits I filmed of him during the speaking portion:
When asked if he were to be reincarnated into an article of clothing, what would it be? he said:
Tim, What fashion trend do you dislike the most?:
I know this is probably just a really cheesy celebrity sighting to the rest of you, but who wouldn't be excited to meet the fashion icon, Tim Gunn?!? I hope he didn't mind my mediocre outfit.. "/
and to my dear sister, if you're reading..."Tumbling squirrel, then Tim Gunn" <3
