After a very successful run with his own New York City-based design firm, Thom Filicia Inc. which he opened in 1998, Thom was cast for Bravo’s new show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy in 2003.  The basis of the show was to help straight men learn to improve different areas of their lives, i.e. the way that they dress, food and wine knowledge, grooming practices and Thom’s specialty of course, interior design. The show went on to win an Emmy and Thom’s design acumen and warm personality earned him a huge following.
