Opening with Tyler, a collection of men's and women's luxurious separates with youthful styling, the designer's expert tailoring shone thru with bibfront cargo pants, dressmaker ribbon details and diaphanous handkerchief hems. Richard Tyler Couture delivered featherweight suiting and dresses, showcasing a masterful control of silk organza and gorgeous beaded edges - precisely the couture touches that his loyal customers expect. Exquisite, fragile gowns followed in a kicked up palette of sultry sherbets, quite literally the stuff of runway legend.

couple in classic tuxedo and white organza maternity gown - effortlessly
cemented his Hollywood legacy and created a true LA moment.
