Public School is an American fashion brand based in New York City that was founded in 2008 by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne. The label has garnered numerous awards for its excellence in design, especially in the menswear realm, including awards bestowed by the CFDA, Vogue and Woolmark.
Public school makes menswear and womenswear collections that embrace the company motto, “To find perfection in imperfection.” It strives to produce designs that reflect a new age of young, irreverent American designers that boldly challenge classic silhouettes by focusing on fabric, fit and attitude. Collections are comprised of basic staples like T-shirts, button-up shirts and long-sleeved tops, which are characterized by clean lines and simple colors. Prints and patterns are kept to a minimum. Public School sources fabrics from around the world, including U.S.A., Japan and Italy, while all garments are made in New York City.
