Public School designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow have been named to this year's "100 Most Creative People In Business" list by Fast Company. The list features notable figures from across all industries, and Osborne and Chow are featured alongside luminaries like Killer Mike and El-P of Run the Jewels, a top Google executive, and one of the men integral in finding a cure for Ebola.
Chow and Osborne are honored for "putting streetwear on the runway," Fast Company writes. The profile also includes an interview that touches on the signature gritty, New York aesthetic that Public School has made its name off of, as well as the monstrous growth the brand has made. "Our company is growing so fast, you rarely have the time to create and design as much as you used to," Chow tells Fast Company. "Now you’re figuring out ways to grow and execute and all those fancy operational words."
This is yet another accomplishment to add to Chow and Osborne's growing résumé. The Public School designers have racked up trophies in the past, including the Woolmark Prize and multiple awards from the CFDA, and were recently appointed creative directors at DKNY.
