Adjusting to a West Coast lifestyle

Tim Gunn

NEW YORK -- For the sixth season of "Project Runway," Tim Gunn had to adjust to the show's move to Los Angeles.

He had to rethink his wardrobe to fit the L.A. lifestyle.

"I got there and realized I don't even have the right clothes because I brought suits and ties ... there is one challenge during which you'll find me in a pair of flip-flips," he says, laughing.

Even though the show is on a new network, don't expect Gunn to be any less of a calming, mentoring presence for the designers.

"I only want them to succeed," Gunn says. "I have a very particular way of operating, which is to believe in them and to believe in their abilities."
