“Dream Your World, Be Your World, Flaunt Your World!”
I’m reeling from today’s news from Lionsgate and SDCC! Lionsgate have announced on Thursday evening that they will be launching the “Her Universe Fashion Show”- a reality series on its Comic-Con International SVOD service in 2016, and I’m so excited I’ve given myself a tummy ache. My initial thoughts are Hereos of Cosplay meets Project Runway and I think that it’s going to be the show of my dreams. For any of you who are as yet acquainted with Her Universe prepare to say goodbye to all your money, forever. Her Universe, founded by Ashley Eckstein has grown enormously over the past five years, making geek-girl fashion so much more than just having to resort to wearing baggy mens t-shirts.
The Site’s fully licensed range features clothing inspired by Star Wars, Marvel, Doctor Who, Transformers, The Walking Dead and Star Trek amongst others, and a Star Wars jewelery range in collaboration with world-renowned jewelery designer Tarina Tarantino’s Sparkle Factory. Celebrating their fifth birthday at SDCC this week with another annual catwalk fashion show, following a call to fashion designers on their site earlier this year to submit their designs.
I’ve been sat in a hot, sweaty office on the outskirts of London today, luckily, for those of us who didn’t make it to SDCC this week, the entire show is now available to watch on Nerdist with a gallery full of the stunning designs:
I’d personally love to rock the light-up Death Star Dress, and make you all force-choke on my eleganza.
What are your thoughts, and what were your favourite pieces from the runway? Will you be watching the show next year?
