Her Universe Brings Style to SDCC for Fourth Annual Fashion Show

Ashley Eckstein’s popular geek-themed clothing line, Her Universe, and Hot Topic are returning to San Diego Comic-Con this summer to bring a little extra style to the event. The two companies are once again teaming up for the4th Annual Her Universe Fashion Show.

The annual event pairs fashion and fandom, offering budding designers the chance to show off both their designing skills as well as their pop culture loves. Last year’s event featured designs inspired by everything from Star Wars, Marvel, Harry Potter, Wonder Woman, and much more.

For 2017, amateur fashion designers will once again be able to submit their pieces, inspired by geek culture, to compete for a chance to show off their final designs in the live show, set to take place in on Thursday, July 20 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel (no time announced, but odds are high it will be at 6PM).

Finalists will compete at the live event, with the winner(s) being selected to be a guest designer with Her Universe to develop a collection to be sold at Hot Topic.

Submissions are being accepted through April 19, and the top contestants will be selected and announced by April 30.

You can find the full list of rules on the Her Universe contest page.
