Perry Ellis Award for Womenswear, 1993 (Now underwritten by Swarovski)
Womenswear Designer of the Year, 1994
Perry Ellis Award for Menswear, 1995
Tyler, who is now based in Los Angeles, was one of the first designers to really dig deep into the celebrity dressing game. He hasn’t shown a ready-to-wear collection at New York Fashion Week since 2005, and a bridal collection since 2006. Around that time, he also closed his South Pasadena, California boutique. You can still buy his Tyler by Richard Tyler shoe line at discount retailers around the country.
