DKNY Announces New Creative Directors: Maxwell Osborne & Dao-Yi Chow

DKNY creative directors

The Public School designers will oversee the DKNY collections for men and women.

The founders of Public School, Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, have won two CFDA awards and numerous industry accolades for their street-smart fashion label. Their fast rise into the fashion sphere has caught the eye of Donna Karan, who tapped the designer duo to be the creative directors of DKNY.

Together, Osborne and Chow will oversee the men's and women's collections for the brand, in addition to continuing their own projects with Public School. "We both grew up in New York," the pair said in a statement, "and DKNY has always been part of the landscape of this city in our formative years as designers and New Yorkers. It's 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 boundries."
