Max Osborne makes history as first black designer to win award with partner Dao-Yi Chow.
Menswear designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne of the too cool for school brand, Public School are topping off one amazing year.
At the CFDA Awards in June, the duo won the 2013 Swarovski Award for Menswear, and just last night they took home Top Honors at the CFDA/VOGUE Fashion fund's annual gala, where a committe of industry experts select only three recipients based on their "exceptional talent."
The prize? $300,000 to grow their business, and mentorship from an assigned industry professional. But the real icing on the cake is the history they make as Osborne being the first black designer to take this award home. Congrats guys!
