Her Universe Fashion Show
Ashley Eckstein’s popular geek-themed clothing line, Her Universe, is returning to San Diego Comic-Con this summer to bring a little extra style to the event. The Her Universe Fashion Show returns this year, co-sponsored by Hot Topic and Disney.
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.
The event will be Thursday, July 20 at 6pm at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
[UPDATE June 22]
The Wrap revealed additional details about this year’s fashion show, which will be in celebration of Disney’s 100th anniversary. This year’s event will be co-hosted by Eckstein and Michael James Scott, currently starring in the Broadway production of “Aladdin” as The Genie. Scott is expected to perform, which should make for a magical evening.
Sponsors Hot Topic and Disney will be transforming the lobby into an immersive experience celebrating the 30th anniversary of the classic stop-motion film The Nightmare Before Christmas. Attendees at the event will have the opportunity to “embark on a winding path through the Cemetery, take photos, spin Oogie Boogie’s prize wheel, and more.”
Fans can also look forward to Eckstein showing off her love of fashion with a unique outfit she’ll be wearing, which will infuse technology and storytelling “in an unexpected way”.
