Here they sit in white plastic lawn chairs sipping Evian--women in their 40s, 50s and 60s, immaculately coiffed, manicured and exuding class. From across Los Angeles and Orange counties, even Las Vegas, they have gathered in a Los Angeles backyard that needs new grass, with trees that could use a clip job. But none of that matters. Their attention is riveted on models their age who emerge from the kitchen, strolling across the yard onto an elevated runway.

James Reva, 67, a California fashion designer who owned boutiques starting in the early 1970s and later sold his label through specialty stores in Beverly Hills and New York City, was found dead March 17 at his Los Angeles studio. The cause was a heart attack, according to his friend William Collins. Reva, born July 15, 1940, in Los Angeles, graduated from Woodbury College. He launched his business in 1972 and captured national attention with his version of the "rich hippie" look, a mix of dressy fabrics with denims.

"It was in the median strip of Glendale Boulevard near San Fernando Road." Hart, a former Air Force fighter pilot, bush pilot and fund raiser, heads the recently revived Atwater Chamber of Commerce.
