Last Thursday, Comic-Con kicked off in a very stylish way, as 25 amateur designers took their pop culture-inspired designs to the runway at the Her Universe Fashion Show. Ever since the show began four years ago, the event has been a place for designers to bring their dream geek couture designs to life and have the chance of winning a life-changing prize – designing a Her Universe collection for Hot Topic.
Making dreams come true became a running theme of this year’s show, as Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein encouraged both the designers and the audience to chase after their dreams. Ashley even brought the idea of dreaming into her own dress, wearing a Cinderella-inspired gown by Andrew MacLaine.
There were several other Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel designs in the show that we absolutely loved! From Lilo & Stitch to Doctor Strange, these geek couture designs are all sorts of magical.
