Chuck Howard (1927-2002) was an American fashion designer. After studying dress design in Paris, he moves to New York. He worked with Bill Blass and Anne Klein at Junior Sophisticates. For a while he had his own brand.
Vogue patterns state: "Chuck Howard is a talented and versatile designer. As an apprentice to Bill Blass he lost no time traveling to the top of New York's fashion circuit. Originality and elegance clearly express his fashion philosophy which is so evident in the fine professional cut of his garments."
