After graduating with BA (Hons) in Fashion Design in 2000, Howard worked in the studio of Hussein Chalayan and alongside curator and exhibition maker Judith Clark. She went on to become first assistant to David Bradshaw – then Creative Director of Prada and Miu Miu – followed by two years with Katie Grand at POP magazine and Louis Vuitton. She was made Senior Fashion Editor at POP in 2006, a position she held for a year. In 2012 Howard co-founded the non-seasonal fashion journal Archivist. To date Archivist has published four journals collaborating with Chloé, Hussein Chalayan, Shirin Guild, Shelley Fox, Christopher Raeburn and Comme des Garçons. The title was shortlisted for an award at the Design Museum’s Design of the Year 2015. Howard is now launching Archivist Addendum and interested in exploring projects that are free from the confines of a bound publication: ‘I want to continue to bridge the gap between contemporary editorial and academia.’
