Ryan, one of New York’s most successful brokers, was being fitted for his suit before his next walk down the runway when spoke to him. 

When asked if he’d suffered a bout of stage fright, Ryan, who was wearing UK designer Richard Smith, said: "Of course I was nervous, I was in Los Angeles a few years ago and will never forget the runway show I attended with a friend.

“Suddenly, Carmen Electra literally fell face first on the runway and I felt terrible for her because she is such a sweetheart. It’s happened a few times after that as well when I was at shows so I was terrified that I was cursed with falling on the runway.”

New York City asked if he felt comfortable in a suit, he said: "I have to admit, if I was uncomfortable in a suit then I am in the wrong profession!

“It was a bit of a challenge to wear a suit all day, every day, so why not wear one on the runway?"

And Ryan isn’t ruling out returning to modeling full time either. He said, "I think I may start walking more runways if possible.

“The only stress of that job is to walk in a straight line!"

When asked his opinion on designer Richard Smith, Ryan, who was one of 10 “notable NYC business men” to appear in the show, replied, "I loved Richard's designs.

“The suit Richard made for me is nothing short of spectacular. He has impeccable taste and his designs are perfectly fitted.

“It was truly an honor to walk in his show."

Nolcha Fashion Week is a showcase for independent designers.
