Hundreds of spectators looked on as Mr. Gunn gave a preview of Spring 2012 looks from Lucky Brand, Juicy Couture, and Kate Spade. After the fashion show, he answered questions from the audience, ranging from fashion advice to his insight into Project Runway.

At the conclusion of the Q&A session, a VIP party was held where participants could speak one-on-one with Mr. Gunn and get a picture taken with him.

Special thanks to Joe Wynn, Fashion Department Career Services Advisor, for putting the volunteer team together and coordinating schedules for a very organized and noteworthy event.
To the IADT-Tampa alumni and current students who volunteered their time, energy and passion -- thank you! You all represented IADT–Tampa proudly while doing an amazing job!
