See the ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Doctor Who’ goodness on the Her Universe runway
Geek fashion never looked so good.
“We wanted to create products to show that you can be proud of your fandom and show it off in style,” says Her Universe creator Ashley Eckstein, introducing the new Her Universe runway show, which took place as a joint collaboration between the designer, the Nerdist, and Hot Topic. The hottest pieces off the runway included nods to Doctor Who and Star Wars, as well as a host of other geektastic fashion references to delight female nerds of all ages.
The runway also gave us a glimpse of Eckstein’s new Marvel product line, which debuted exclusively on the Daily Dot in June.
You can also view galleries of the fashion looks as well as a few geek couture pieces at the Nerdist and at The Mary Sue. The Dalek and Hobbit wedding gowns scored huge hits, and they look even better coming down the runway:
