SLCC Giving Day 2022 Virtual Event with Tan France

Tan France has been a successful fashion designer behind-the-scenes for over 15 years and became a breakout star following the launch of the Emmy-winning reboot of the reality makeover series "Queer Eye" in 2018. Surrounded by an all-new cast, France is the witty wardrobe wiz leading the charge in the fashion department, ready to make America fabulous again one makeover at a time. But the series is about so much more than just new clothes to the British-born fashion advisor; it's about real-life issues, representation, and acceptance on all sides.

Tan can also be seen starring as the co-host of Netflix's global design competition series, "Next in Fashion" alongside Alexa Chung. In 2019, Tan released his NY Times best-selling memoir "Naturally Tan" as well as the Emmy-nominated and Webby Award winning YouTube series "Dressing Funny," which features him making over his celebrity friends including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Nick Kroll, Miranda Sings, Pete Davidson, and John Mulaney.

Prior to his media career, Tan was the creative mind behind successful brands including the popular women's clothing lines Kingdom & State and Rachel Parcell, Inc. In Tan's early years, he spent his summers working in his grandfather's denim factory while he secretly enrolled in fashion college in preparation to start a new chapter as a fabulous design star.
