PUBLIC SCHOOL is a New York story. Designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, born and raised in New York City, represent the convergence and restless energy of the city in which they live and work. Founded in 2008, PUBLIC SCHOOL is redefining the landscape for menswear and women’s wear. Chow and Osborne blend high and low references from fashion, music, and art to create a point of view that is both unique and precisely detailed.
Chow and Osborne design and manufacture the full range of their collections in New York, incorporating fabric from the best Italian, Japanese and American mills. It is paramount to the Public School brand DNA that it keeps its production roots in New York, supporting local tailors, pattern makers and skilled garment workers. It is these genuine and personal experiences throughout the development process along with their design mantra ''finding perfection in imperfection,"" that epitomize the brand and its commitment to produce only the finest quality clothing.
