Tim Gunn, star of T.V.’s Project Runway, is coming to Anderson’s Bookshop

Anderson’s Bookshop, Naperville, will  host a special event with Project Runway’s own Tim Gunn beginning at 7PM, Fri., Sept. 14.

The pop culture icon is best known as co-host of the 12-time Emmy-nominated reality show Project Runway, but also hosted two seasons of his own Bravo makeover series, Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style.

And now, Gunn is headed to meet with readers and fans at Anderson’s Bookshop, 123 W. Jefferson Ave. in downtown Naperville.

Gunn will be presenting his new book, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible, at a signing event. Priority numbers for the booksigning line are available with the purchase of Gunn’s new book from Anderson’s Bookshop. This event is a booksigning line only where fans will get an opportunity to meet the author.

About the Book: In the beginning there was the fig leaf… and the toga. Crinolines and ruffs. Chain mailand corsets. What do these antiquated items have to do with the oh-so-twenty-first-century skinny jeans, graphic tee, and sexy pumps you slipped into this morning? Everything! Fashion begets fashion, and life—from economics to politics, weather to warfare, practicality to the utterly impractical—is reflected in the styles of any given era, evolving into the threads you buy and wear today.

With the candidness, intelligence, and charm that made him a household name on Project Runway, Tim Gunn reveals the fascinating story behind each article of clothing dating back to ancient times, in a book that reads like a walking tour from museum to closet. From Cleopatra’s crown to Helen of Troy’s sandals, from Queen Victoria’s corset to Madonna’s cone bra, Dynasty’s power suits to Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits, Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible takes you on a runway-ready journey through the highs and lows of fashion history.

Drawing from his exhaustive knowledge and intensive research to offer cutting-edge insights into modern style, Gunn explains how the 1960s ruined American underwear, how Beau Brummell created the look men have worn for more than a century, why cargo capri pants are a plague on our nation, and much more. He will make you see your wardrobe in a whole new way. Prepare to be inspired as you change your thinking about the past, present, and future of fashion.
