Cheolmin Kim, founder of Maestoso, started his love affair with tailoring and fashion when he was 20. Having attempted reading various different disciplines at university, he eventually fell in love with clothing and apparel when he was in University in Florence.
Diving deep into the art of tailoring, he left school and pursued his one and only singular goal of becoming a bespoke artisan - a master tailor. After having understudied with various tailors, stores and schools for several years, he began refining his approach towards bespoke commissions. He returned to Seoul in 2020 to start his label MAESTOSO and began his journey of pushing the boundaries of tailoring.
