For the 6th year in a row, the highly popular and stylish Her Universe Fashion Show is preparing to take San Diego Comic Con by storm with special announcements being unveiled just in time for kick off of the convention season.
This year’s theme, The Power of Fashion, is promised to inspire, bringing the universe of powerful characters, stories, and themes across popular culture together in celebration of all things geeky, nerdy, and empowering. Presented by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and DreamWorks Animation’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, the show will be held on Thursday, July 18th at 6PM in the Harbor Ballroom of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.
24 designers will compete, with two winners being chosen. One winner will be an audience choice, while one will be from an expert panel of judges. This year’s panelists have been revealed, which include the Her Universe Fashion Show 2018 winners! See the full list below:
Ed LaBay (VP/GMM at Hot Topic), Liz Munoz (Torrid CEO), Lisa Baldzicki (VP of Parks Merchandise and Products Development for Disney Parks and Resorts), Meghan Camarena (@Strawburry17 Host, Producer, and Actress), Merit Leighton (Voice of Frosta on She-Ra and the Princesses of Power), Michaela Dietz (Actress and voice of Amethyst on the Cartoon Network Hit Series, Steven Universe), Kristi Siedow Thompson (Her Universe Fashion Show 2018 Audience Choice Winner), Cynthia Kirkland (Her Universe Fashion Show 2018 Judge’s Choice Winner) and Jane Burson (Her Universe Fashion Show 2018 Singer Sewing Winner).
