Public School

View Designer Profile

Drawing on their shared experience of 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 high-low inspirations into fashion forward menswear. Past stints designing at Mecca, Ecko, and Sean John inform their current brand of tailored, street-wear inflected urban sportswear. All garments are designed and made in New York's garment district, further establishing Public School's close connection to the city that inspires it. After winning the CFDA's Swarovski Award for Menswear in 2013, the duo has extended their creative vision to womenswear with a range of crisp, monochromatic separates in clean and minimal cuts.
