No one would ever equate New York’s Fashion Week to your average schlub with a hairy back, but when organizers of the semiannual runway shows in Bryant Park took a long look at themselves through a different lens, thanks to a new title sponsor, they suddenly discovered some problem areas. So they called in the professionals — or just one of them, anyway.
Interior designer Thom Filicia, a.k.a. the home styling representative of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” was given the honorary title of Olympus design director and charged with making over the inside of the Bryant Park tents, much as he would any hapless victim on his Bravo program. His mission was to spruce up the place —?which hasn’t seen a real update since the Dinkins administration —?to reflect the corporate spirit of Olympus, 7th on Sixth’s new title sponsor, and also to put more focus on the photographers.
