It’s time for another scan from the vaults.
Did you know Dao-Yi Chow, who co-runs the CFDA-winning brand Public School with Maxwell Osborne, is a writer and onetime rap journalist? It’s true. He confirmed it when we asked him at the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s.
Chow used to contribute to The Flavor back in the day, a “real hip-hop magazine” based in Seattle in the mid-1990s. Chow went by Durwin Chow GNS, “graffiti non-stop,” and lived in New York. Most Flavor writers back then contributed their stories by fax machine.
Here’s Chow’s November 1994 Flavor cover story, an interview with the funny-yet-deep duo Black Sheep.
