At the third annual Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2016, host and founder Ashley Eckstein wore the very first couture LEGO gown!
The gown was designed by 2014 Audience Award winner Andrew MacLaine and brick artist Nathan Sawaya. It was made from 10,000 LEGO pieces and weighed over 25 pounds!
The long, sleek dress featured the face of Ahsoka Tano, of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, on the front. (For those of you who don’t know, Eckstein is the voice of the beloved animated character!)
Here is a bit of information about this year’s Her Universe Fashion Show from the official press release:
“27 designers competed with haute couture designs inspired by pop culture stalwarts such as Star Wars, DC, Marvel, Harry Potter, Mad Max: Fury Road, Game of Thrones, Pokémon, Doctor Who, Sailor Moon, Labyrinth, Supernatural, 28 Days Later, Wall-E and Red Dragon / Silence of the Lambs.
The finale of THE HER UNIVERSE FASHION SHOW docuseries, which was filmed last night, will be available on Comic-Con HQ on Thursday, July 28. That same day, voting will open on HerUniverse.com.”
