NEW YORK — Chuck Howard, an integral figure to the establishment of the American sportswear movement in post-World War II New York, died on Monday at the age of 75.
Howard was a well-known figure on Seventh Avenue in the Fifties and Sixties, when he worked with Anne Klein at Junior Sophisticates, and eventually designed under his own label from 1968 to 1974. But he will also be remembered for making an important fashion connection by first introducing a young Donna Karan to Klein, as well as for opening a short-lived but successful restaurant in Manhattan’s theater district in the Eighties that was a regular haunt for Bill Blass, Tom Fallon and Bobby Short.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
