Following his beginnings as a salesperson at Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys and Tiffany’s, Zyla debuted his Seventh Avenue evening wear line at just 22 years of age, which was picked up by luxury retailers. He went on to design for commercials, film and theater. Zyla served as head costume designer on ABC soap operas All My Children, General Hospital, and Port Charles, and received seven Daytime Emmy nominations in the category of Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design for a Drama Series, for his work on All My Children, with a win in 2010, which was shared with James Hammer and Kate Jonas.
