Have you ever wanted to be a geek fashion designer? Her Universe, a company that specializes in sci-fi themed clothing for fangirls, recently announced an open fashion design competition to be held during San Diego Comic Con.
Inspired by recent fashion week trends, such as Rodarte’s collection based on Star Wars, Her Universe decided to team up with Nerdist to create a fashion show centered around “geek couture.” This isn’t just another cosplay competition. Her Universe founder, Ashley Eckstein is looking for designs that can be seen on the runway. Think Project Runway meets Big Bang Theory.
In order to enter, contestants must submit a design by April 4th. The top 30 designs will be chosen to be featured in the fashion show during Comic Con. The finalists must actually construct their design and send their own model on the runway. Two winners will be chosen. One will be picked by the judges and the other will be the audience favorite.
So what do you win? The winning designers will score the chance to co-design a fashion collection, alongside Ashley Eckstein for Her Universe, that will be sold at Hot Topic. This is an amazing opportunity for designers who want to join the geek fashion movement. For more information on how to enter, see the official contest rules.
