TROY, MI – Hundreds of fashion lovers, curious shoppers and Project Runway fans gathered in the north grand court of Troy's Somerset Collection Saturday to take in a fashion show co-hosted by Project Runway star Tim Gunn and Liz Claiborne Marketing Director Leah Caruso Salak.
Gunn – who is known for his iconic phrase "make it work" and for his role as chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne, which on May 15 will be known as Fifth & Pacific – showed off apparel and accessories from Juicy Couture, Kate Spade New York and Lucky Brand jeans while offering fashion tips to attendees.
"We want people to come away from the show feeling a greater sense of confidence about really owning how they present themselves to the world and saying, you know, I could really be who I am," Gunn told Troy Patch in an interview earlier this week. "I don't have to be a copy of someone else. I don't have to look like that mannequin in the store – I can do this myself."
