CHICAGO – Fashion guru Tim Gunn is dispensing his wisdom yet again. As the 10th season of “Project Runway” winds down, Gunn has released a new book, “Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible: The Fascinating History of Everything in your Closet.” He was recently in Naperville, Illinois, signing books at Anderson’s Bookshop.

The new book is a fashion history through the lens of Tim Gunn, whose catchphrase “Make it Work.” has been established in the national vernacular. He goes through the variations of how history and culture has affected what we wear, and how we wear it. And only Tim Gunn can inspire a different way of thinking about fashion in the past, present and the future.
