Adds Osborne, “To be included in the same company as this talented group of designers is an honor itself. We are amazed and thankful for this recognition.”

Chow and Osborne have quickly amassed a reputation for taking classic silhouettes and updating them through a modern lens by mixing high and low references from fashion, music and art into their work.
