It hasn’t always been fashion runways and hit television shows for style guru and fashion mentor, Tim Gunn. Best known as the Emmy Award winning co-host of Project Runway and most recently Amazon’s Making the Cut, he is also a New York Times bestselling author and former Chief Creative Officer for Liz Claiborne, Inc.

Early in his adolescence, he suffered from social anxiety and depression, and spent more than two years at a psychiatric hospital. “I was a very unhappy kid…but that unhappiness spiraled downward to the point where I made a very serious suicide attempt.” Tim would later credit an insightful doctor for saving his life. “That’s how we get through life—by having people whom we trust, loved ones who are important to us, and by reaching out and saying ‘I need some help’.” In a candid conversation, Tim will detail how he overcame his struggles and share his everyday lessons for making it work.
