Keep the Cargo Pants Away from Tim Gunn

For now 11 seasons, fashion maestro Tim Gunn has served as “mentor” on the fashion competition show “Project Runway,” offering contestants sharp advice…and a shoulder to lean on. He was a longtime faculty member – and later fashion design chair – at “Parsons The New School for Design” in New York. His latest style guide is “Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in Your Closet” (out now). Tim warns us about the plague of cargo capris, then gracefully addresses listener questions about power(point) ties and ill-suited party wear.
