During his time in retail, Tony also designed for Miss America and Miss USA contestants. The Tony Bowls Collection was featured in the opening numbers of the 2006 Miss Texas Pageant and Americaís Outstanding Teen 2006 Competition, and on former Miss America Deidre Downs as well as eleven contestants of the 2006 Miss America Pageant.

Tony designs were also featured on the first season of MTVís hot reality show, Tiaraís Girls.
