Meeting the most talked about duo of the moment in menswear was not only an unforgettable experience but also a humbling one at that. Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow, the creative minds behind the cutting edge fashion brand based out of New York known as Public School, were incredibly grounded and carried themselves with such an effortless ease.
