UPDATE (8th April 2015): The Fashion Show has been confirmed, to be taking place at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, on Thursday, 9th July. The submission process is open right now and designers, 18 years and older, can submit designs to be considered for the fashion show at this link, here. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 22nd April, 2015 and the 25 contestants will be selected and announced by Tuesday 28th April, 2015.
Her Universe founder, Ashley Eckstein, said in a press release, “We’re thrilled to announce The Her Universe Fashion Show is coming back to San Diego Comic-Con 2015. I can’t wait to see the designs submitted this year. It’s going to be impossible to choose only 25 designers to compete in this year’s show. SDCC brings together a pool of incredible talent!”
2014 saw Her Universe‘s inaugural runway show of geek couture at San Diego Comic-Con, presented in partnership with Hot Topic and Nerdist Industries at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel; it was quite the glittering affair, showcasing not only some of Ashley Eckstein‘s geek clothing company’s own lines but also fabulous entries from fashion designers from across the globe, all grasping for time to show off their creations on the catwalk.
It was such a roaring success that it almost now seems inevitable that a 2015 event will follow in its footsteps and, as part of this weekend’s WonderCon Anaheim event, the company will be holding a special Her Universe 2015 Fashion Show Update Panel at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel in their Elite Ballroom, on Saturday 4th April at 11am, in which they confirm their presence at SDCC this July.
The panel will be presenting the latest update from Ashley on the all-new Her Universe Fashion Show and Design Competition, taking place in San Diego, as well as bringing on stage the winning designers from last year’s show. The company will also be presenting an exclusive sneak peek at their all-new Marvel Collection to be sold by Hot Topic this May, along with bringing along reps from Hot Topic to present a Behind The Scenes look on the making of the new Marvel collection.
