SDCC: 2019 Her Universe Fashion Show

The Her Universe Fashion Show made its official debut at San Diego Comic-Con six years ago. Since then, it has provided a space for geek designers to showcase their work. This year’s theme was “The Power of Fashion.” Inspired by the Netflix and DreamWorks TV series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, 24 finalists were challenged to create designs influenced by powerful characters, stories, and themes. Thursday night’s show also celebrated the power of friendship. Founder Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: Clone Wars, Blue Collar TV) proudly co-hosted the show with friend Tiffany Smith (Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, House of Demons).

Here’s how the night went down.

The finalists were separated into 6 groups of 4 and were allowed to have a model of their choice or walk down the runway themselves. Groups 1/2 went first and were followed by 3/4 and 5/6. The winners get the opportunity to work on a very special Wonder Woman collection with Her Universe for Hot Topic.
