Donna Karan International announced today that Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, the founders of New York-based brand Public School, are the new creative directors of DKNY. They will oversee both the men’s and women’s collections and will present their first collection during New York Fashion Week in September. In just a few years they have established Public School as one of the hottest upcoming labels, known for its street-inspired sensibility and classic American construction. The brand has been awarded generously, winning the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2013, the CFDA Award for Menswear Design in 2014, and the first-ever International Woolmark Prize for menswear in 2015. Fans of the brand will be happy to know that it will be business as usual at the label, with Chow and Osborne splitting their time between Public School and DKNY.

In response to the announcement, a joint statement from Chow and Osborne says:

We both grew up in New York and DKNY has always been part of the landscape of this city in our formative years as designers and as New Yorkers. It is one of the brands that helped change the game for us and for American fashion. It evokes everything our city was always about–energy, disruption, new thinking and transcending all boundaries. We are extremely proud and excited to be joining the company and to contribute to the next chapter of DKNY, one of the most iconic American brands created by Donna Karan, a true inspiration.
