Public School's politically charged fashion collection turned heads at the brand's midtown Manhattan fashion show.

The designers decided to forgo traditional fashion schedules and release their line when they felt they were ready and the result is a fashion collection that is as stylish as it is political. The show featured models hammering at bricks and painting while wearing yellow jumpsuits, which represented "the rise of leaders who shouldn't be leaders." The clothing itself was intended to represent "uniforms of the revolution." This is an extremely politically charged statement to make in a time when establishment politics are being heavily criticized by more progressive and revolutionary values.

Revolutionary change has always come from individuals, groups, counter-movements and art and this fashion collection is an artistic representation of the politics of the 21st century.
