Tomorrow, exclusively on Comic-Con HQ – the new digital network and streaming video-on-demand destination for San Diego Comic-Con, two episodes of the new docu-series The Her Universe Fashion Show: Fashion Meets Fandom will debut. The Her Universe Fashion Show is a geek couture fashion show that will be held this year during SDCC on Thursday, July 21 at 6 PM. This year, 27 designers will compete for a design contract with Her Universe and Hot Topic. The Her Universe Fashion Show: Fashion Meets Fandom will follow star Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as she visits the geek culture inspired designers and sees their design choices and inspirations. Among those who will be appearing with Eckstein are designers Lindsay Hamilton, Adria Sanchez, Hannah Kent, Carina LaViolette, Michael Yale, Grace DuVal, Martha Calderon, Michelle Ramsay, Kristin Koga, Lydia Tachkov, Sarah Raider and Hot Topic’s VP of Merchandise, Ed Labay, and Brand Marketing Manager, Andrea Lewis.
The Her Universe Fashion Show always brings some amazing designs to the runway. Some of the dresses that have been shown are absolute goals to be able to wear. My personal favorite from last year was the Audience Award Winner, a Sailor Moon transforming dress by Leetal Platt, modeled by Chloe Dykstra. I can’t wait to see what this year’s show will bring.
