It’s that time of the year again! Her Universe is looking for designers to participate in this year’s Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. It will be the third consecutive year that the fangirl fashion company showcases designs created by fans on the runway at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel. Designers from around the country are encouraged to submit applications. A total of 25 designers will be selected to compete and the winners will get the opportunity to design a collection in collaboration with Her Universe and Hot Topic.
What else makes this year’s “geek couture” Fashion Show exciting? The entire process will be filmed for a docu-series produced by Blondie Girl Productions that will air later this summer on Comic-Con HQ, the new Comic-Con subscription video-on-demand service. A total of three winners will be chosen at this year’s Fashion Show, and the third winner will be chosen by the Comic-Con HQ viewers at home!
If you’re planning to apply, don’t put it off for later, since the submission deadline is on Sunday, April 24th, 2016. The 25 finalists will be selected and notified by Wednesday, April 27th, 2016.
“My favorite part of The Her Universe Fashion Show has been getting to know all of the designers behind the scenes,” said Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels as well as the creator of Her Universe. “With the new docu-series on Comic-Con HQ, fans will get to know each designer and follow their process and journey to the runway at SDCC. There are so many talented designers out there that just need the opportunity and platform to showcase their skills. I encourage fans to submit and no experience is necessary!”
Also, if that wasn’t exciting enough, here’s a preview of a Hot Topic photo shoot featuring the new Captain Phasma jacket and leggings from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection from Her Universe. A sneak preview of the collection was shown at WonderCon 2016 and you can read more about that here.
