Tim Gunn in Albany

Regina V sends us this fabulous field report from Albany. Thank you Regina!

Hey BPR!

I had the great pleasure of meeting Tim Gunn on April 26th at Macys (Colonie Center mall) in Albany, NY. He was in town for the Macys/Liz Claiborne Mother's Day Fashion Show.

Even though the event was slated to begin at 2pm, those of us who made reservations were told to arrive at 1pm to get in line. The line seemed to grow out of nowhere as the excitement built up. After everyone was seated - was told there were 200 seats - those without reservations stood around the back and sides of the crowd. My own seat was fabulous, being on the left side of the runway itself in the second row.

The fashion show was terrific and showcased a lot of fashions that are younger and more hip for Liz Claiborne. So glad this label is moving forward to appeal to more women! Tim was gracious in offering tips for styling and accessorizing throughout the show.
