We’ve seen cosplay contests and the masquerade ball, but this year will unleash a venue for fashion designers. Yes, I said fashion designers are San Diego Comic Con. Her Universe is looking for fashion designers to submit up to 3 designs (not costumes) to be selected as one of 30 finalists for The Her Universe Fashion Show. If you’re attending Comic Con and curious or a designer wanting to see what the hottest Nerd Couture is, it will be held July 24th, 2014 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, CA.
“WHAT DO THE WINNERS RECEIVE? The two winners will be invited to be a guest designer with Her Universe to develop a fashion collection (2-5 pieces) to be sold at Hot Topic. The two winning designers will receive payment for this work.”
It should be noted, that Her Universe is doing this in conjunction with Nerdist Industries. So I’m guessing Chris Hardwick is involved in here somewhere. But, what’s the harm in adding more things that people geek out over to what is already the geekiest-fest in the world? The designs are female only, but male or female designers may submit entries. Entries need to be submitted by April 4th.
I approve of anything that pulls people away from the main panels, so let’s do it! There are some crazy good costume makers out there, so this could be a fun opportunity that maybe they never considered.
