In August 2000, he was appointed Chair of the Department of Fashion Design at Parsons with the charge of retooling and invigorating the curriculum for the 21st century.

Finally, Marvel comics made him a superhero in their 2009 revival of Models, Inc. with a special feature, "Loaded Gunn," in which he dons the Iron Man armor to fight crimes against fashion.

Gunn serves as co-host of the six-time Emmy-nominated "Project Runway," a reality-based fashion design incubator, the eighth season of which broke all previous seasons' ratings records. "Project Runway" received GLAAD Media Awards in 2007 and 2011 and a Peabody Award in 2008.

Gunn has made cameo appearances on the television shows "Ugly Betty," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Gossip Girl."

He also starred as Supervisor J-3, a spiritual guide with a quick wit and a sharp suit, in ABC Family's TV movie, "Teen Spirit."

Gunn's first book, "A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style," was the core of "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," a two-season makeover show on Bravo. His new book, "Gunn's Golden Rules," was released on September 7, 2010, and rose to No. 5 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Gunn gives a good deal of his time to charitable organizations, especially those associated with domestic violence, AIDS awareness and GLBT issues. Those organizations include the National Domestic Violence Hotline, GMHC, the Hetrick-Martin Institute, Bailey House, and the Human Rights Campaign.

Gunn's latest project, "The Revolution," is a daily show about health and lifestyle transformations. The show is hosted by a team of experts and rotating guest contributors who help viewers transform all areas of their lives, from relationships to family, food, style, home design, finance and more. "The Revolution" (working title) is a one-stop shop for better living. The show will premiere January 2012 on ABC.
