Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne spent several years designing for Sean John and are now creating big waves on the international fashion scene with their own niche line, Public School. Having made their runway debut at 2012 New York Fashion Week, these graduates of the first ever Council of Fashion Designers of America Incubator Program (CFDA) are known for taking city-inspired fashion and incorporating edgy, yet refined sensibilities creating clothing that unites fashion with art and culture. The James Royal Palm tapped Public School along with their Miami-based collaborator Max Pierre to create all of the uniforms for the staff at the hotel, from front desk and concierge to the wait staff in Florida Cookery and The James Club. Combining elements of their signature style with the various facets of The James brand ethos, both Public School and Max Pierre will unveil their designs created for The James Royal Palm’s uniforms this fall and host a series of trunk shows throughout 2013.
