Her Universe Fashion Show SDCC 2016

Written By FeastnFlix on Thursday, July 28, 2016 | 6:05 PM

San Diego Comic Con 2013 was the first year that Ashley Eckstein's consumer apparel line Her Universe hosted the first fandom based fashion show. Comic Con attendees that year sat in a ballroom at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in downtown San Diego and witnessed the passionate clothing designers of fandom display their own wearable works of art. Then, at the end of the show, two winners would be selected. A panel of judges comprised of fashion designers, popculture personalities, and other artists would choose one winner: the judge's winner. The attendees of the fashion show are also provided a ballot to select their favorite: the audience winner.

The tradition has continued for three years now with only attendees able to view, unless you count the videos loaded to youtube. This year, thanks to Comic-Con HQ, fans all over the world can tune in and watch the whole event on Thursday July 28th. Additionally, those same fans watching from home will have the opportunity to select a winner as well.

Below is the detailed press release:
