Public School Pulls Out of NYFW Showing

Is big change coming to the industry?

By //Fashion

Public School just announced it will not be taking part in the upcoming New York Fashion Week to show its Fall/Winter 2018 collection.

Has it become more spectacle than practical? Is the move away a sign that more designers are becoming conscious of sustainability? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
