Maqaroon® was created by award-winning manga illustrator Joanna Zhou. After studying at Central St Martins and Chelsea College of Art & Design in London, she spent many years working as a kawaii product designer and writing for industry magazines. Based on her personal interests, Joanna felt there should be a concept which combines cute character design with contemporary street fashion. Her vision was to create a brand that's adorable yet sophisticated, with cultural inspiration from all over the world...and so Maqaroon was born!
Maqaroon is a celebration of youth trends. You'll find everything from Gothic Lolita and Gyaru to Hipsters and Prepsters. Each little animal is meticulously researched with allusions to culture, fashion and music. Joanna hopes that Maqaroon will be an informative resource as well as a fun, exciting brand. On www.maqaroon.com, anyone can vote for their favourite characters so please drop by and have a go!
The online shop launches with a range of posters, postcards and sticker sets at super affordable prices. Inspired by her student days, Joanna wanted to design pretty products that don't cost a lot but can make a big impact on your living space. Maqaroon is based in Austria and ships worldwide.
