FRONT ROW CRITIC: Tim Gunn, who was seated front and center at the Douglas Hannant show Friday, said he plans to attend as many shows as he can fit in during fashion week and was there on behalf of Liz Claiborne, where he is always on the look-out for new companies. “We’re being very strategic right now, we’re absolutely thinking about the high end. We’re not in an acquisition mode, but we will be at some point,” said Gunn. As for his myriad TV endeavors, he said “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style” has been picked up for a second season, and the “Project Runway” designers will be arriving on Saturday to tape the finale, which airs Feb. 8.

It was a late night.” Other attendees like Elettra Wiedemann, Poppy de Villeneuve, Chiara Clemente and Zani Gugelmann managed to remain bright-eyed, sans eyewear.
