In his new book, Tim Gunn writes that he taught a well-known designer who was kicked out of school for plagiarism: “He hadn’t turned in any of his own work since the beginning of junior year. He was collecting projects from wherever he could find them—including those from former students, or muslins left lying on tables. He explained that he didn’t have time to do school projects because he was so eager to get out into the real world.?The fellow has since had great success, and I’m happy for him. He is incredibly talented. And yet, I’ve always felt a twinge of annoyance when I encounter his work.” Anyone know who he's talking about? Leave your best guess in the comments. [The Cut]
