Clothing line Her Universe, along with retailer Hot Topic and media company Nerdist Industries, will hold their debut fashion show at Comic-Con Thursday.
The Her Universe Fashion Show will bring 36 designers together from all over the country to premiere their unique “Geek Couture” offerings to the Comic-Con crowd, with themes ranging from sci-fi and TV to comics and gaming.
The designers will compete for two grand prizes: an opportunity for both winners to co-design a Her Universe fashion collection for Hot Topic. One winner will be chosen by a panel of celebrity judges and another winner will be chose by the audience.
Admission to the Her Universe Fashion Show is free, and entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Hot Topic will host the fashion after-party with a special performance by pop punk band All Time Low.
“The Her Universe Fashion Show is truly a celebration of the fangirl culture at San Diego Comic-Con, yet it’s an event that everyone will enjoy,” says Ashley Eckstein, actress and founder, Her Universe. “We’ve been working hard with Hot Topic and Nerdist to ensure that it’s an exciting event with plenty of surprises.
