Tim Gunn of ‘Project Runway’ Returns to Penn State

Designers, fashionistas, and Lifetime television addicts across Penn State will be happy to hear that Tim Gunn of “Project Runway” is returning to Penn State. Gunn is one of several keynote speakers for this year’s Web Conference at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel at University Park, which will take place from June 22 to 24. Gunn is set to speak on Monday, June 22, at 3:30 p.m.

The television host’s background boasts a wide range of experience, from teaching at Parsons The New School of Design to inspiring a fashion-fighting Marvel superhero, “Loaded Gunn.” Most of us know him as mentor and father figure on Lifetime’s “Project Runway” television series since the show’s beginnings in 2004. In 2013, he and co-host Heidi Klum won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality Competition.

In addition to “Project Runway,” Gunn has hosted two other shows — “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” on Bravo and “Project Runway: Under the Gunn” on Lifetime — and authored several best-selling books.

The Web Conference at the Penn Stater is a series of workshops and speakers that help professionals from “interactive, technical, design, marketing, and learning” realms better understand their web space. The theme for this year’s Web Conference is “Design the Future.”

In addition to Gunn, several other keynote speakers will be present at the event. For all reality television lovers out there, Bravo’s Andy Cohen will be speaking at the event as well. As an executive vice president at Bravo, Cohen is best known for his live late night show, “Watch What Happens: Live,” as well as the Bravo’s notorious “Real Housewives.”

Gunn and his co-speakers will “make it work” at this summer’s conference in June. More information can be found on the Web Conference site.
