Following in the steps of Burberry and Gucci, Public School announced that they'd be combining their mens and women's collections on the runway.
“Showing twice a year with both men’s and women’s in one show will allow us to really develop our ideas cohesively throughout the year and subsequently slow the entire process down,” designer Dao-Yi Chow says in a press release. “We can actually enjoy our collections as opposed to being tied to the calendar.” The release also states the brand will instead “focus on consumer-facing activity during fashion weeks in September and February.”
"When we launched women's it was always the extension of the men's collections. It was a collection that our female friends could enjoy without altering the men's pieces to wear," designer Maxwell Osborne adds. "We feel the similar design approach made more of an impact when we showed men's and women's at the same time."
