The 9th annual Her Universe Fashion Show, hosted by Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka Tano, Star Wars) with this year’s co-host Michael James Scott (The Genie in Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway), returns to San Diego Comic-Con International (SDCC). They will be celebrating 100 Years of Disney on Thursday, July 20 at 6 p.m. PT in the Harbor Ballroom of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.
In addition to the countless surprises planned to delight and entertain the audience, Ashley Eckstein will wear a one-of-a-kind couture design infusing technology and storytelling in an unexpected way. Actor and recording artist Michael James Scott will also dazzle the audience with unforgettable performances!
“I’m so proud that The Her Universe Fashion Show has become one of the most anticipated events at San Diego Comic-Con and fans have no idea what we have in store for them this year!” says Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein. “This year’s show will be a love letter to Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and more — but also a love letter to the fans! Our show is so much fun for the whole family, it’s free and we’ll be giving away Disney merchandise and one-of-a-kind prizes ALL night long. This year is not to be missed!”
Presented by Her Universe and Hot Topic, the show is celebrating 100 Years of Disney. The night of inclusion and creativity will bring talented designers from around the country together for an original geek couture fashion competition, with the ultimate prize of designing a special fashion collection with Her Universe. The audience will help choose one of the winners, as well as an expert panel of judges that includes the 2022 Her Universe Fashion Show winning designers Cindy Guillermo and Michael Burson, SVP Hot Topic Merchandising, Robin Motts, and Bret Iwan, the voice of Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Disney Artist.
Additionally, Hot Topic has teamed up with Disney to transform the Her Universe Fashion Show lobby into a whimsical fan experience in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Fans will have the opportunity to embark on a winding path through the Cemetery, take photos, spin Oogie Boogie’s prize wheel, and more!
Check-in begins at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 20 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel Harbor Ballroom, and doors open at 4:15 p.m., with the show beginning promptly at 6 p.m.. The Her Universe Fashion Show is free for San Diego Comic-Con attendees and all ages are welcome.
