Tim Gunn with Terry Gross on Fresh Air, NPR

I so very much enjoyed this interview with Tim Gunn of Project Runway and Chairperon at the Parsons School of Design in NYC.
He is so much fun and dittos my perspectives on fashion and style in a number of significant ways.
Its important to both Tim and me that we are always aware of how we are presenting ourselves., be it the mail person or the bank teller, presentation counts. Clean, pressed, color-coordinated outfit balanced in color and design. Not only clothes that are in proportion to my body but also appropriate to my lifestyle, even one step up from those I am likely to meet that day.

Tim Gunn and I believe its important to shop within a budget. I believe and can prove that it is easy to find high quality clothing for pennies on the dollar.
He and I also believe one should dress for their own style. To define and have a set of styles that are your own.

Ironically, Tim Gunn was a swimmer in high school as was I. He liked it because it was a solitary sporting event. I left it for the same reason he liked it and joined the women’s volleyball team so I could be on a TEAM. Another similarity, he wanted and did play the piano for 12 years. I asked and was denied piano lessons. My mother was a single mom of six kids. So I started piano at age 57.

As teenagers, we both knew how to manipulate adults with ease. He met his match with an adult therapist and this was very significant for his life. I successfully manipulated my high school academic councilor to willingly and repeatedly give me a pass to get back into school even when I had skipped three days in a row.

Tim Gunn found a feeling of liberation and empowerment when he realized he is just fine living alone. I recently have realized the same thing.

Terry Gross stated that she can’t find clothes to fit and that the fashions out there are hideous or totally inappropriate for her. I suggest she give me a call.
My website: Pasha’s Fashion Salon will explain that I can turn what is in your closet into items that not only fit correct, but also express who you are to the point that you are truly feeling and communicating your uniqueness . . . the precious individual wanting to get out in the open.

When a teenager can escape the Fashion World competition, not with a uniform but rather with a unique wardrobe designed with readily available tools at hand, its empowering.
