According to reports, Public School designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne will be leaving DKNY. CEO Caroline Brown will also be leaving the company as well. These moves were as a result of some repositioning following the sale of the property by LVMH to fashion giant G-III for $650 million USD.
“Given the company sale and subsequent change in strategies, we have decided to step down and focus on our own business Public School,” said Osborne and Chow in a joint statement. “It’s been an unbelievable experience to work side by side with the wonderful people at DKNY, especially our amazing design team and atelier. We wish the company success in the future.”
