“The draw of this event is that guests are able to learn from one of the best and well‐known fashion mentors in the industry,” Leah Caruso‐Salak, director of Marketing and Special Events for Liz Claiborne Inc. and co‐host of the event, said in a news release. “Tim has more energy and enthusiasm during these events than anyone. It should be a very exciting day!”

“I am absolutely thrilled that I have the opportunity to host our Spring 2012 fashion event at Somerset Collection,” Gunn said in a news release. “The people of Michigan are filled with kindness, generosity and warmth and I always feel right at home while I’m there."

Since Tim has a BFA in sculpture, I'd personally like to know if he still sculpts in his free time. :)

Tim, my daughter and I love watching anything with you on it. I think you are so positive and really an inspiration to people of all shapes and sizes. How do you stay so positive and what advice would you give young girls as far as dressing appropriately. There is so much pressure now to wear promiscuous clothing. My lil one is 12. Thanks, Lisa and Rachel, Troy
