In a somewhat expected outcome, it has been recently reported by Women’s Wear Daily that Public School designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow will exit DKNY. It was only earlier this year that LVMH sold Donna Karan International to fashion conglomerate G-III for $650 million USD. With the sale now final, the apparel giant is looking to revamp positions – Osborne and Chow’s exit, along with CEO Caroline Brown’s would be the start.

“Given the company sale and subsequent change in strategies, we have decided to step down and focus on our own business Public School,” said Osborne and Chow in a joint statement. “It’s been an unbelievable experience to work side by side with the wonderful people at DKNY, especially our amazing design team and atelier. We wish the company success in the future.”

It will be interesting to see what the next step for all the parties involved. Meanwhile, we’re sure to see the guys at Public School continue their work.
