Electronics and Transforming Dresses in Geek Couture Fashion Show

Her Universe hosted its second annual fashion show at San Diego Comic-Con over the summer. Fashion designers sketched and submitted geek couture outfits for the show, and selected winners then brought their sketches to life and down the runway. Like the first event in 2014, many of the ensembles featured transforming elements and electronics. LEDs were prominent in many of the submissions — like the Death Star dress pictured above.

Her Universe partnered with Hot Topic to present the fashion show (the winners get to help design a collection that will be sold at Hot Topic), and Hot Topic just shared a video overview of the event that shows off the fancy outfits. You can watch the video on Facebook.
