Junior Deal Divo meets Tim Gunn in person! We are so proud.
Junior Deal Divo Tucker DeGregory, who helped readers decide what to wear to see Tim Gunn's speech at the University of South Florida this Wednesday, had the pleasure of meeting the style guru in person.
In fact, Tim's peeps were so impressed with 11-year-old Tucker's article, they arranged for him to sit down with the Project Runway rock star before the event. Tucker, an aspiring fashion designer and 6th grader at Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School in St. Petersburg, got to show off his very own design sketches, which the incredibly gracious and enthusiastic Tim Gunn autographed. He also gave Tucker useful feedback, tips and resources for making his career happen.
So, what we're saying is this: When you are rich and famous and we're all paying big bucks for your designs, remember us little folks back at the blog, Tucker!
