SDCC: The 2012 Her Universe Panel

Posted By Mike on July 3, 2012

Ashley Eckstein and Her Universe are all set to return to San Diego Comic-Con International and Ashley's bringing an all star line-up to help promote our favorite geek-girl clothing company...



Geek Girl Trendsetters Asked To Show Off Their Style To Experts For
Her Universe Panel at San Diego Comic-Con


NEW YORK, NY – July 2, 2012 - For the third year-in-a-row, actress and HER UNIVERSE™ Founder Ashley Eckstein will sponsor and host a panel at San Diego Comic-Con -- but this time with a very special and unique participatory theme for girls at the convention. The panel, entitled, "Are You a Geek Girl Trendsetter? Show Off Your Style to the Fashion Experts and Win Prizes," will take place on Saturday, July 14th from 6-7p.m. in room 25ABC and will feature an all-star group of experts made up of fashion buyers, designers, creators and actresses from the fashion and sci-fi worlds who will give their advice to fangirls on how to create their own style and look. Eckstein (the voice of Ahsoka Tano from Star Wars: The Clone Wars) was inspired by the NBC television show Fashion Star to give female fans the opportunity to show their unique style and original designs to the experts through this panel!

Girls are asked to attend the panel in their own custom made or styled everyday geek/sci-fi inspired outfits and accessories. Up to 30 girls on a first come, first served basis will have the opportunity to show their outfits before our expert panel. Each panelist will then choose two girls who truly impressed them with their overall design and flair to become finalists. Panelists will give their feedback and advice to the finalists and they will then choose a first, second and third place winner, each of whom will receive a special prize. The panel will be filmed by MTV Geek as part of their Comic-Con coverage.

Comic-Con is full of geek girls who create, design and construct their own fashions. Eckstein devised this panel as a way for girls to get feedback on their trendsetting creations from a special panel of fashion professionals:

Tarina Tarantino - World renowned designer whose jewelry, handbag, cosmetic and lifestyle collections can be found in the best luxury fashion stores internationally as well as her own trademark boutiques.

Ed Labay - Senior Buyer/Licensed Apparel for leading music and pop culture fashion retailer, Hot Topic, who helps determine the fashion trends for fanboys and fangirls through the chain's more than 600 stores.

Courtney Lear – Social Media Manager for Hot Topic and self-proclaimed geekette who has her finger on the pulse of the fanboy and fangirl communities online.

Clare Grant - Actress (Robot Chicken and Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and producer and founder of Team Unicorn, a multi-media production team of fangirls whose videos have been seen by millions.

Bonnie Burton - Author and creator of the Star Wars Craft Book and geek girl extraordinaire.

Stepping in as co-host with Ashley for this very special panel is actress, "Geek Goddess" and voice of Padme Amidala in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Catherine Taber! Her Universe will also be offering its licensed geek girl apparel at booth 2913-F in the Lucasfilm Pavilion at Comic-Con.
