Fandom Fashion! How YOU Can Design For Comic-Con's First Ever "Geek Couture" Show!!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionComic-ConWalk It OutStar Wars

Geek Couture is about to make its official Comic-Con debut!

Comic-Con and fashion have been associated for ages!!

You’ve seen the photos — all the biggest geeks usually attend dressed as their favorite Comic-Con character. In fact, last year Bryan Cranston showed up dressed as himself!

So FINALLY some genius thought of the idea of putting on a “Geek Couture” fashion show at San Diego Comic-Con, and it’s happening this year!!

According to the organizer, Star WarsAshley Eckstein at Her Universe:

“Fangirls are already using the halls of San Diego Comic-Con International as their runway to showcase custom fashions. We wanted to give these designers a bigger stage to share their talent and also provide an educational experience in the fashion industry.”

AH-mazing!!

Her Universe allows contestants to submit custom fashion designs online that are not costumes, but rather fashions inspired by “anything that is celebrated at Comic-Con”. Out of the submissions, 30 designers will be chosen to compete in the Her Universe Fashion Show on July 24th!

The resulting Geek Couture will be judged by a panel, and the top two designers will win a chance to co-design an exclusive Her Universe collection for Hot Topic.

Geek fashions have already trickled onto mainstream runways, so we can’t WAIT to see what Comic-Con enthusiasts will come up with!!

P.S. If you're a designer, you can start submitting designs HERE.
