The Her Universe Fashion Show returned to San Diego Comic Con this year with its theme being “The Power of Fashion”! Host/Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars’ Ahsoka Tano) opened and closed the show with a one-of-a-kind, trans-formative dress. It’s design took inspiration from DreamWorks Animation’s She-Ra and the Princess of Power. 2014 Her Universe Fashion Show Winner Andrew MacLaine designed the dress. Ecksein wore custom accessories by designer Harmony Leiker.
For those unfamiliar, Eckstein created Her Universe to provide distinct, geek fashion for girls. According to its official website:
