Kiko Kostadinov is the menswear designer behind the acclaimed eponymous label based in London. His work focuses on innovative pattern cutting, attention to detail and intricate garment construction, aiming to challenge and contribute to contemporary menswear aesthetics. Kostadinov completed his undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins, and was the first Menswear Design student to be awarded the NEWGEN Men British Fashion Council Support directly after his graduation. His debut collection was presented at London Collections: Men in June 2016, and in November of the same year Kostadinov was appointed by luxury British heritage brand Mackintosh to helm their new designer line, Mackintosh 0001, shown during Paris Fashion Week in January 2017. For his Spring Summer 2018 show Kostadinov worked with Japanese performance wear specialist ASICS on their first shoe collaboration, a creative partnership which continues to this date. In 2017, Kostadinov was announced as one of Forbes Europe's 30 under 30 within The Arts category and in 2018 he was nominated for a fashion award under British Emerging Talent Menswear.
