WonderCon 2017: Her Universe Fashion Show Panel Descriptions

Her Universe will be making its first convention appearance of the season at this year’s WonderCon Anaheim. WonderCon is traditionally the place where Ashley Eckstein and the crew talk about the Her Universe Fashion Show, which will be entering its 4th year this summer at San Diego Comic-Con.

Last year’s Fashion Show included three winners: Hannah Lee Kent (Judges Winner), Camille Falciola (Audience Winner), and Jesse Thaxton (Comic-Con HQ Winner).

Whether Her Universe will partner up with Comic-Con HQ for a second season of the docu-series, Her Universe Fashion Show: Fashion Meets Fandom, is something that I hope will be brought up during the WonderCon panel. I also look forward to seeing a preview of the upcoming Her Universe x Hot Topic collection that the three winners having been working on since last summer.

In addition to the panel, Her Universe will also have a Portfolio Review for fans looking to learn more about the geek fashion business and getting some advice about their designs and a Junior Design Session, where children aged 6 through 17 can come and design with the Her Universe team.

TWG will be on the scene, so look for Periscope videos, photos, and live tweets over at our Twitter.
