Gunn took on a new challenge, becoming chief creative officer at Liz Claiborne, whose 40 brands include Kate Spade, Juicy Couture and Lucky jeans. Gunn’s mission is to reinvigorate the struggling $5 billion company, whose profits fell 20 percent in 2006.
Old news, but I wanted to blog it. I love Tim Gunn. Such a great example of a kind, warm, knowledgeable, expert (out, gay) man of complete integrity that truly enjoys his job. And now he is moving to help revitalize the Claiborne brand.
