A former associate dean at Parsons the New School for Design, Tim Gunn went on to reconfigure the New York-based school's curriculum for the 21st century as the chair of the Department of Fashion Design. In addition to his association with Parsons, Gunn is also a noted lecturer whose ideas have graced the pages of such diverse publications as Time, Martha Stewart Living, and Crain's New York Business. In 2004, Gunn began co-hosting the Bravo reality series Project Runway alongside fashion icon Heidi Klum. In late 2007, he also launched his own Bravo makeover show, Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, co-hosting with model Veronica Webb. He made news when he became one of the first prominent celebrities to contribute to the "It Gets Better" campaign aimed at helping prevent suicides among gay and lesbian high-school students.
