Smock Me Designed by Michael Howard

Michael Howard

It was eight years ago, after losing both of his parents, that he decided that it was time to immerse himself in a new environment. He packed his backpack, and left for Los Angeles without a plan. He explained how the fear of the unknown propelled him forward on his journey. Without a place to stay, he ran into a friend on his first day in town, who gave him a temporary home as he established himself in his new surroundings. He experimented in acting, but when it failed to inspire him, he began working and designing for a shop on Melrose. He additionally began teaching himself to sew. 

He started with a used jean jacket which he distressed further and added additional creative flare.  He then began designing more distinct pieces for himself and his friends.  When they continued to receive a tremendous amount of attention when wearing the garments, Smock Me was born.
