If you can’t get enough of geek fashion, then the “Geek Couture: Designs from the Her Universe Fashion Show” exhibit at the Comic-Con Museum pop-up is your place to be!
The exhibition will feature more than a dozen designs from the past fives years of the Her Universe Fashion Show, an event that’s become a major highlight of San Diego Comic-Con.
Not only that, but after this year’s Fashion Show comes to an end on Thursday, July 18, the exhibit will be expanded to include the winning designs and other select gowns worn by Ashley Eckstein.
Eckstein couldn’t say much about what she’ll be wearing on the runway, but according to SDConCast’s interview with her, she said she’ll be wearing traditional outfits and she’ll go through multiple wardrobe changes throughout the night.
“And the theme for this year’s show is ‘The Power of Fashion,'” she said. “My gowns and all of the designers’ gowns are inspired by powerful characters, powerful stories, powerful themes, or powerful statements. So, expect a lot of power on the runway.”
We also have no doubt you can expect the same kind of power at the exhibit all weekend long. Here’s what you need to know:
Thursday, July 18 – 9:30 AM – 7:00 PM
Friday, July 19 – 9:30 AM – 7:00 PM
Saturday, July 20 – 9:30 AM – 7:00 PM
Sunday, July 21- 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Admission is FREE. A Comic-Con badge is not required for entry. If the building reaches its capacity, however, there will be a single-entry line, which will be organized on a first come, first served basis.
