Piergiorgio Del Moro for Public School
Piergiorgio Del Moro cast the Public School Spring/Summer 2016 presentation, already one of the most talked-about shows during New York Men's Fashion Week. Designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne enlisted a multiethnic range of models as well as actor Waris Ahluwalia, street style icon Nick Wooster, and musician George Lewis Jr. (known by his stage name Twin Shadow) as part of a broader commentary on expectations of traditional fashion show casting.
The designers stated on Instagram:
"We wanted to promote the idea of unity especially in these times. Dressing our crew of boys from all walks of life in the quintessential Public School uniform contrasted against a backdrop that has come to contextualize and marginalize a specific group of people reinforces the need for this idea of solidarity. Shaking up the traditional notions and images of who you've come to see in this setting. But we're really all the same when lined up side by side. So the systematic styling of the show makes it hard to pull someone out and say they're any more or less than the person standing next to them."
