Drawing on a shared experience growing up in New York City, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne launched Public School in 2008 with the goal of translating the city's energy and inspirations into fashion forward menswear. Their stints designing streetwear at Mecca, Ecko, and Sean John inform their current brand of tailored urban sportswear. All garments are designed and made in New Yorkâs garment district, further establishing Public School's connection to the city. After winning the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Menswear in 2013, the duo plans to extend their creative vision to womenswear in the coming seasons.
