Dao Yi & Maxwell Osborne

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.


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. In 2010 PUBLIC SCHOOL was chosen by the Council of Fashion Designers of America to be part of the inaugural {FASHION INCUBATOR} business development program. After focusing on moving one hundred percent of production to New York City, Chow and Osborne affirm the brand's ability to inject the attitude of their hometown into their designs. In June 2013, PUBLIC SCHOOL was honored with the CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear. In November 2013, PUBLIC SCHOOL was named the winner of the prestigious 2013 CFDA VOGUE Fashion Fund Award.
