Custom Crowns: Versatile Fashion by Aisha Anime

custom crowns

Fashion is dictated by the latest trends on the catwalk and even picking up a jumper from the bargain bin shows hints from a past season when that jumper was based on a design that was popular, Custom crowns is streetwear that aims to delete the beginning. Using their velcro passion to create 100's of designs so you don't have to be left with one look.

Expertly crafted; with attention to detail, form and functionality. With our Custom Crowns velcro snapbacks and truckers, you take control. Create your style. Customise your crown. The (capslaps) patches features their own signature designs in collaboration with independent artists, familiar brands and even take bespoke commissions. Why should fashion be limited?

Kickstarter launching soon but they have already had people snap up their hats ; such as Ed Sheeran, THE FIRST KINGS (X Factor), KORR-A and SNOOCHIE SHY.

The team behind Custom Crowns started out with a shared love of fashion, design and art. Collectively,  tired of how generic the caps offered by so many companies were becoming and even though the cap market is booming we felt their was room for a more niche product that would encompass the individuality that so many of us crave these days. 

They spent time researching and sourcing materials that would give them confidence that they could offer something different to anything currently on the market. 

Through their innovative design concept they wanted to give their customers something they will love and cherish and rush to show their friends. As importantly wanted to create an ethical business that gives back to the local community while simultaneously supporting many talented artists from around the world.

New Otaku Cafe in London by Aisha Anime

mcm otaku cafe

Otaku Cafe is Afternoon Tea with a Twist, the maids & butlers will bring you cakes, drinks and engage in fun games making it an experience you'll soon not forget. Maid cafes have been on the boom since 2012 and have been appearing in a variety of places as well as London, Manchester and even Scotland.

In 2011 founder, Deanne,  had gone to Maidreamin in Akihabara, after than experience she could not  stop talking about how fun it was and when she came back to London thought that we needed one here. Time went on and the idea was put on a backburner. But then a year and a half ago her and her friends were talking about it again and the idea was resparked but this time they dove in and made it happen, she registered the name and from there plans were made

A Kickstarter was created to get them to MCM and proved successful, however they fell short at MCM as they were not allowed to sell food and drink which is after all is the cafe's sustenance. A few things happened and Sami (Co-founder) left the business. Deanne then decided to create the pop-up cafe outside the convention restrictions, which was recently funded by another Kickstarter.

For Deanne the Otaku culture is never seen as a negative but more as a positive, she love's all things Japan and wants to be able to share this culture in a fun way. Hence the Otaku Cafe was born!

Spanning from the 7th May till the 29th you will be able to book sessions online to attend the cafe and eat some sumptuous food there and play games with the maids and butlers.
