Tim Gunn is more than a gay icon and much-beloved mentor on Project Runway. He's one of the industry's top players, both from his years of experience as a teacher and adviser, and as OUT magazine explains, "because he tells it like it is."

The OUT team has been canvassing Fashion Week like crazy and were able to corner the "Make It Work" man for this cool video interview. In it, Gunn talks about how fashion still gets him excited, a brief history of New York Fashion Week, why he likes Fashion Week's new digs at Lincoln Center, and why he hates Fashion's Night Out.
