Meet Tan France
Successful fashion designer Tan France is best known as the wardrobe wiz of Emmy-winning hit makeover TV show Queer Eye where he's ready to make America fabulous again one makeover at a time. This experience is so much more than just new clothes to the British-born fashion advisor; it’s about real-life issues, changes and acceptance on all sides.
Pre-Queer Eye it was Tan’s early years spending summers working in his grandfather’s denim factory while secretly attending fashion college which led Tan to become the creative mind behind successful brands including Kingdom & State and Rachel Parcell, Inc.
Following the global success of Queer Eye, Tan released his NY Times best-selling memoir Naturally Tan as well as the first season of his viral YouTube series Dressing Funny making over his celebrity friends including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Tan also hosts Next in Fashion, a global fashion design competition series for Netflix alongside Alexa Chung.
