Accademia Alta Sartoria Europea (AASE) is a British and Italian bespoke tailoring academy located in South Korea’s trendy Gangnam area in Seoul. Founded in May 2018 by master tailor Young Ho Kwon, it is one of the elite institutes in bespoke tailoring in the country. Young Ho Kwon is a leader in this discipline, as he is the director of Dux Elegantiae and Merceria Magnifica, as well as an instructor at Savile Row Academy in London.
While the academy’s mission is to prepare students for professional excellence in bespoke tailoring, AASE provides much more. The AASE offers courses in making trousers, waistcoats, jackets and coats. Students also learn fundamental skills, including understanding different body types, pattern making, hand cutting, hand sewing, fitting, and finishing. Graduates will have all of the needed skills and knowledge to be an authority in the bespoke tailoring industry.
All courses are taught mainly by Young Ho Kwon and by other highly–trained instructors.
