Attendees at Gerber Technology's upcoming Ideation2015 technology conference will get a chance to hear from “Project Runway” star Tim Gunn, who will give the keynote address at the Oct. 29–30 software conference for the fashion, apparel, accessories and footwear industries in Las Vegas.

Gunn has served as co-host and mentor on Lifetime’s “Project Runway” since the fashion competition first launched on Bravo in 2004. He is also the fashion dean at Fifth & Pacific and a member of the administration and faculty at Parsons School of Design. In addition, he is an executive producer of “Project Runway” as well as the upcoming reality series “Project Runway Junior." He is also the author of “Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work.” “We’re thrilled to offer a keynote speaker of the caliber of Tim Gunn at Ideation2015,” said Mike Elia, Gerber Technology chief executive officer. “He truly understands the demands of the fashion and apparel industry and especially how important it is to have the best possible resources and tools available. His insights into navigating today’s numerous technologies will be valuable to everyone attending the conference.” Ideation2015 will host panel discussions, workshops, demonstrations, case studies and networking opportunities. This year, the event will also include a competition for fashion design students, who will create original looks inspired by the Darnell Collection of vintage couture.

“We are appreciative of Tim Gunn’s contributions to fashion design education and his support of technology-led solutions,” Elia said. “I’m certain that the best-practices stories he will offer in his keynote will have a lasting impact on our audience, especially the design students who are our leaders of the future.” Ideation2015 will be held at Caesars Palace.
