American Oscar-winning Hollywood fashion designer. He shot to fame with top clients at MGM, creating clothes that gave the illusion of perfection to the form of the gorgeous women whom he dressed. He won the Oscar in 1949 for "Adventures of Don Juan" and two Emmy's in 1980 and 1985 for TV specials.

Travilla left the movies on a hiatus to design for posh stores such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. He was lured back to screen design for a TV movie on the life of Jackie Kennedy in 1981. By 1984 he was designing costumes for "Dallas" and "Knots Landing."

Travilla died of lung cancer 11/02/1990, Los Angeles, CA.
