Richard Tyler Couture Black Silk & Sequin Plunge Back Dress

About

Elegant 1990s black silk evening dress by Richard Tyler. This maxi length dress has a shift silhouette that skims the body, a wide bateau boat neck, and capped sleeves with hand detailed black sequins. The amazing deep plunging back of the dress is supported and accented by a thin cord with hook and eye closure. A knee - length slit up the back seam adds even more drama! Made in the United States. Richard Tyler was born in Melbourne in 1946. When he was 16 Tyler apprenticed under a Saville Row tailor. Two Years later, in 1954, Tyler opened his own boutique in Melbourne that featured his designs as well as those of his mother who was a dressmaker and costume designer. He too designed for entertainers, cutting his teeth through creating costumes for musicians during the 1970s. In 1984 Tyler moved to Los Angeles where he entrenched himself with the Hollywood set, creating glamorous gowns for celebrities. He was head designer for Anne Klein and BYB LOS in the 1990s, won the Costume Fashion Designers of America Award in 1993, 1994, and 1995, and won the Michaelangelo Award in 1996. Tyler’s style is sensual yet structured. Many of his designs harken back to the 1940s, with sculptural patterns, bias cut silks, and tailored details. Clients include: Diana Ross, Cher, and Elton John
