Richard Tyler pads through his Italianate dining room, Diet Coke in one hand, antibiotics in the other, a slender convalescent in a big white turtleneck. It is late morning, and he has been out of the hospital for five days. His long hair hangs in waves of salt and pepper. His 59-year-old face, which has been compared to those of various debauched British rock stars, is a study in glorious past excess.

Richard Tyler, one of L.A.'s most accomplished fashion designers, has been chosen to give Delta Airlines' 35,000 employees a new look. Tyler will create new uniforms to be rolled out in 2006, when existing uniforms will be retired after having been in service for five years. "From the first flight I took with my mom when I was 13," Tyler said, "it's been stuck in my head how chic stewardesses looked in those suits with great shoulders and hats on the side of their heads.

Despite Southern California's billion-dollar fashion industry, few people to the east consider Los Angeles a source for couture. But clothes horses need not travel to New York or Paris.

Los Angeles designer Richard Tyler bucked tradition Wednesday night with a fashion show for clothes needed here and now. The runway show featured an extended men's holiday collection, shown to a standing-room-only crowd at the Tyler boutique on Beverly Boulevard. The menswear was fab, as in '60s fab-ulous, full of mod turtlenecks, groovy jackets and bright colors.

Now that Richard Tyler has bid adieu to Anne Klein and decided to concentrate solely on his own label, an interesting phenomenon has developed: Fans are scrambling to buy the last items in his Klein collection. Since this is the final season for Tyler under this label, some fans consider all the garments from this last collection to be quite dear indeed, reports Patti Ross, owner and buyer for Ron Ross' women's apparel division, which held an informal trunk show for the collection last week.

The fall shows that ended here Wednesday won't go down in history as a compendium of the most uninspired, sleazy and at times absurd fashions, but not for designers' lack of trying. Never have designers dithered so much over hemlines and silhouettes and fabrics--will neoprene ball gowns herald the new millennium?--only to come up with solutions that grown-up, modern women have no earthly use for.

Actors know better than anyone that practice makes perfect. Many stars at the 52nd annual Emmy Awards have been down the red carpet before, and they know the fashion drill. Make it sexy, sparkly and show your colors. Once again, many female stars banished black and tried on new colors.

New designers come to fashion week for the same reason starlets come to Hollywood: the possibility of becoming the Next Big Thing. "Every year we have new names peppered with the heavyweights," said Fern Mallis, executive director of Seventh on Sixth, which runs the shows. "It's the nature of the business that people are always falling out and falling in." What is noticeable about this season's lineup, however, is its diversity.

Richard Tyler was the final designer to show his spring collection here last week, but that certainly was not by choice. Although about 300 people attended the Saturday afternoon show at his Gramercy Park townhouse, that was half the number expected two days earlier when Hurricane Floyd forced the rescheduling. It's too bad so many skipped the show to go home, shop or enjoy a beautiful clear day. The Los Angeles designer's finale to Fashion Week here was truly grand.

'I wouldn't wear this," said Sunset, a curly-haired blonde sporting a brown pin-striped suit with exaggerated lapels and bell-bottoms. "You have to be pretty secure to wear this." Another model in a Bob's Big Boy-style hairpiece was equally perplexed by the aqua and red harlequin-pattern zip jacket and red tights she wore down the runway. "I don't really understand it," she said. "But I guess it's kind of cute . . . for the right person."

Los Angeles-based designer Richard Tyler launched his first bridal line last week with a show in Manhattan at Barneys New York. The designer's Los Angeles boutique has dedicated an entire room to the collection of some 20 gowns. Priced from $3,500 to $9,000, the gowns are modern, sophisticated and very Richard Tyler in their simple, straight lines. But the gowns do have some traditional romantic embellishments, such as lace and rolled roses.

Most of the fashion world is populated by big, lumbering businesses. They wallpaper their names across the world, defining success as logos plastered on backpacks and bottoms from Hong Kong to Houston. Compared with them, Richard Tyler is an anomaly, a gifted throwback to a nearly extinct tradition of craftsmanship. He is well-known as a designer, but unlike most of the men and women who assume that title, he can actually sew.
