SOLOMON HONORED: After 26 years at Bloomingdale’s, it’s hard to think of Stephanie Solomon as a former teacher. “I stuck with it for several years, until the kids threw books at me,” Solomon said at the fund-raiser for Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts earlier this month at One Chase Manhattan Plaza, where top fashion designs created by seniors were spotlighted and so was Solomon, who received the school’s Icon of Style Award. She graduated from Syracuse University in 1972 with a degree in education, became a teacher, but eventually moonlighted as a freelance stylist for Vogue’s Candy Pratts Price. In 1984, Bloomingdale’s late Kal Ruttenstein hired Solomon as fashion coordinator, who rose to become its current vice president for fashion direction for ready-to-wear.
