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 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 men and women who assume that title, he can actually sew.Most mornings, he leaves his Italian-style villa in South Pasadena, Calif., and guides his black Jaguar to his new factory in a neat industrial complex in Monterey Park.

At the Grammys on Wednesday, competition was intense in an unspoken, unofficial category: the "Jennifer Lopez State of Un-Dress" award. And the winner was ... Maryland's own Toni Braxton, who stunned the crowd with a barely-there silver gown very much in the spirit of Lopez's unforgettable Versace number from last year's ceremony. Braxton, 33, picked up her sixth award wearing a Richard Tyler piece that resembled little more than a scarf nipped at the waist. It turned out to be the Grammy dress talked about around the world - or at least in fashion and music circles.

And with a train yet.Publicity blurbs said Whoopi would wear an androgynous tux, shirt and tie by Giorgio Armani. We love a surprise. The Oscars were off to a good fashion start.
