    I wish I could have afforded to go to college. why not a reality show which gives (me) contestants an opportunity to take a course at Parsons and if they pass..... I would have loved to have gone to school.

    Tim,
    I am turning 50 this year. I find myself playing it safe and buying more tailored clothes and being conservative in dress.

    I love fashion and style. How can I incorporate the latest trends and be age appropriate?

    Dear Sir,
    I am 5' 2" tall, 120 lbs, but my waist line seems to be expanding. Can you suggest styles that I should be wearing to camouflage my waist line?

    I constantly watch your show!

    I live in Barbados, why not come and visit our lovely island!

    Models have crossed over to Entertainment, but don't you think that celebrities have taken over the face of fashion? Where are the next super models that are known for 'the look'?

    Greetings Mr. Gunn - I'm writing from Long Beach, CA. I'm 57 years old, have gained weight in the last few years (go figure), now a size 16, and I am having trouble finding jackets, pants, and tops that are not boring and don't cost a fortune. It seems that clothing manufacturers/ designers are unable/unwilling to translate the smaller cute designs into larger sizes. And, it also seems that when you get into larger sizes, polyester is the fabric of choice and elastic waists are de rigeur. Can you PLEASE tell the fashion industry that they are missing out on a large (pun intended) segment of the market by creating horribly designed, cheap garments? I am so desperate that, at this moment, I am actually considering designing and sewing my own clothes with some interesting fabrics and trendy details. Any thoughts or hints?

    On those days where you have NOTHING to wear in wardrobe full of clothes but still want to look chic, what is something simple that you suggest?

    Hi Tim, I just love you and your personality. With you fashion seems so reachable for everyone. You don't have the Diva attitude we're used with (especially here in paris). So Tim i'd like to know what kind of pants would you recommend to a "round" and short woman in her 30s'?
    And what kind of coat ?
    I thank you in advance and wish you the best in everything especially in health. Best wishes Deena in Paris, France
