Designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao Yi Chow Salute Public Schools with New Clothing Line

September 12th, 2012

Public school holds a special place in the hearts of many native New Yorkers.

For designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao Yi Chow, those memories inspired them to create a men’s clothing line called, you guessed it “Public School.” The pair recently unveiled their spring 2013 menswear collection at Milk Studios in the Meatpacking District.

The designers met when they worked together at Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Sean John label and are members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America incubator program, which provides business mentoring and networking opportunities for young fashion industry hopefuls.

The Public School line is completely produced in New York City at factories in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan and includes about 26 pieces, including suits, shirts, denim, knits, leather outer wear and accessories.

“Our biggest inspiration is New York,” Osborne told the Wall Street Journal fashion blog, Heard On The Runway. “… its energy, its beauty, its not-so-beautiness [sic], its ugliness, its dirtiness and its cleanliness … we often say that we find perfection in imperfection.”
