Fashion Week Tampa Bay 2011 As most of us know — those of who don't, you do now — this year’s annual fashion blowout is Sept. 20-24. The event kicks off with Past Perfect: A Celebration of Vintage Designs 1890, 7 p.m. at the Art Institute of Tampa. For more event info, visit . Tim Gunn Live Fashion Show At International Plaza and Bay Street; Sept. 17, 1 p.m., Grand Court; TV celeb style expert Tim Gunn knows how to "make it work" on the reality competition show Project Runway. His recent memoir and advice manual, Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work, offers a candid recount of a suicide attempt and some curious tell-alls (is naming names polite, Timothy?). One bizarre childhood memory involves his dad, Vivan Vance (Ethel from I Love Lucy) and J. Edgar Hoover. Gunn will be at International Plaza to share his professional expertise as he hosts a Fall 2011 fashion show launching the latest collections from Juicy Couture, Kate Spade New York and Lucky Brand. Gunn will speak to guests about the importance of style, proportion and fit. After the fashion show, Gunn will take questions from the audience.
