Her Universe Fashion Show Shines Light on Geek Couture

Her Universe has been hosting a fashion show at San Diego Comic-Con since 2014. The event offers designers the opportunity to make chic, couture designs inspired by their favorite fandoms. This year the fashion show included ensembles — mostly dresses — based on Star Wars, Marvel, Studio Ghibli, and more. The winning designs were Doctor Strange and Princess Mononoke outfits. You can see those looks and more during the final runway walk in the above video by The Wookiee Gunner.

I wanted to call out a couple of specific accessories. Her Universe founder and fashion show host Ashley Eckstein wore a light-up headband, and her hair stylist hid the battery pack inside a bun:
