Her Universe Releases Sneak Peek of SDCC Fashion Show Designs, and Holy Cats Would You Look at That Black Widow Dress
Geek on fleek. On gleek?
Earlier this year Her Universe announced it would be returning to San Diego Comic-Con for another fashion show following their triumphant debut in 2014, and now we finally have a look at some of the geek couture Ashley Eckstein will be showing off come July.
The gowns above were designed by last year’s winner, Andrew MacLaine; MacLaine and co-winner Amy Beth Christenson also collaborated on the Marvel by Her Universe Avengers Collection.
Her Universe’s press release gives all the deets you’ll need to make the most of this year’s show:
The Her Universe Fashion Show, hosted by actress and Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein, returns to San Diego Comic-Con 2015 with an all new group of aspiring designers. This year, 25 finalists will present their original “geek couture” designs in the runway show to compete for the opportunity to design a limited edition fandom collection with Her Universe for leading specialty retailer Hot Topic. The 2nd annual Her Universe Fashion Show will take place on Thursday, July 9th at 6pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego. More than 2,000 fans are expected to attend this exciting runway show celebrating fangirl fashion and pop culture.
[…] The Her Universe Fashion Show is the brainchild of actress Ashley Eckstein. The event not only aims to spotlight fangirl culture but to also support aspiring designers by providing them with a real runway to showcase their one-of-a-kind designs to the world. Two winners – one chosen by the audience and one chosen by a panel of judges, will be awarded the unique professional experience of co-designing a fashion line for Hot Topic retail stores.
