John & Mickie was established in 2014 by veteran designer and pattern maker Loraine Ebbins. The line is named in honor of Loraine’s parents. Mickie was a collector and a true artist; working and collecting beads, paying attention to every small detail. John was an engineer designing the guidance systems for this country’s major rockets; a real rocket scientist. As a couple they stayed together no matter what, inspiring Loraine with creativity and perseverance.
John & Mickie is run with Loraine’s husband and business partner, Gary, a production assistant, Susie, and sales manager, Whitney. We truly consider ourselves a team with our female-owned Los Angeles factory—after all, ALL clothing is handmade! We are so proud to utilize the garment making talent in Los Angeles and contribute to the economy in our own city.
