FORA.tv Speaker - Maxwell Osborne
Born and raised in New York City, Maxwell Osborne began his design career in 2003 as an intern at urban label Sean John. With raw talent and a strong work ethic, he moved from intern to Assistant Designer, and eventually became Head Designer of Women’s Wovens. In 2007, he joined future partner Dao-Yi Chow at Chow’s Miami Beach boutique Arrive and helped to design the store’s private label.
In 2008, he and Mr. Chow, a fellow native New Yorker and former colleague at Sean John, joined forces to create contemporary menswear brand Public School, with an aim to redefine the landscape for men’s tailored sportswear. Together, they blend high and low references from fashion, music, and art to create a look that is masculine and precisely detailed.
