Her Universe has been on a roll lately. First, they announced their collaboration with Kohl”s for a line of Marvel-themed workout gear. Now they”re teaming up with Hot Topic – one of their favorite partners – for a line of women”s fashion based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The new nine-piece collection features the winning designs from last year”s Her Universe “Geek Couture” fashion show and competition at San Diego Comic-Con. Designers Leetal Platt and Kelly Cercone won with their original concepts and snagged the grand prize: the opportunity to co-design a line of clothing with Her Universe founder (and voice of Star Wars” Ahsoka) Ashley Eckstein. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that collection.
“We had so much fun watching Kelly Cercone and Leetal Platt, two young and extremely talented designers, win the Geek Couture fashion show at SDCC 2015,” commented Cindy Levitt, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing at Hot Topic. “Seeing their journey from sketch to production to a collection on the floor of a national retailer was truly a great experience for all.”
The new line will be available soon at select Hot Topic stores and most of the collection is available NOW on HotTopic.com. Sizes XS-2X will be available in stores, 3X and plus sizes (0-5 or 12-28) will be offered online only.
