Her Universe, the fandom fashion company created by actress Ashley Eckstein, is bringing its geek couture fashion show back to rock the runway at San Diego Comic-Con for the eighth year.
26 designers competed to make it to the final show, and they will compete on Thursday, July 21 at 6pm in the Harbor Ballroom of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel. The winner will get the ultimate prize — the chance to create a collection with Her Universe and Hot Topic.
Eckstein will co-host this year’s event with Nina West, best known from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“After three years away, I am overjoyed for our event to return in person,” said Eckstein. “We chose this year’s theme because San Diego Comic-Con is not only the home of our fashion show, it is truly a home for me and the fans. We have an amazing group of designers this year and I can’t wait to share the stage with my dear friend Nina West. This will be a celebration you won’t want to miss.”
“I am beyond thrilled to join my friend Ashley on stage for the Her Universe Fashion Show. Celebrating inclusivity with amazing fashion looks everyone will love will make for an incredible evening,” added West.
The event is free to attend, and all ages are welcome. Check-in begins at 1pm, and doors open at 5:15pm.
