Her Universe has brought a delightful collection of Studio Ghibli tees to Hot Topic. Ashley Eckstein announced the partnership at the Her Universe Fashion Show during San Diego Comic-Con, and the first wave of t-shirts includes styles inspired by Kiki’s Delivery Service and My Neighbor Totoro. Many of the tees feature fun text, and I’m already looking forward to seeing more designs.

See the rest of the t-shirts in the line after the break.

The Ninth Doctor wasn’t around for long, but he’s still got a place in our hearts. This dress is a subtle tribute to him that only the most die-hard Whovians will recognize. It’s a 95/5 cotton/spandex blend that will make you look like a Time Lord.

Doctor Who has brought a lot of iconic images into our lives, but few have been reproduced more than this painting from the episode “Vincent And The Doctor”.

Just when you thought you saw it all, Van Gogh’s Exploding TARDIS painting takes a new form in this adorable A-line Dress from Her Universe.

HU fashion show 12

Her Universe brought geeky haute couture to San Diego Comic-Con last night with its first ever fashion show. Hosted at a room in the Hyatt by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and Nerdist, the event showcased work from both amateur and professional designers and took a moment to show off new items in the Her Universe collection – including a peek at apparel from their Studio Ghibli partnership.

The designers entered a contest online with a chance to participate in the fashion show and win the opportunity to work with Her Universe and Hot Topic to design a line of geek chic apparel. There were 36 designers, and they didn’t kid around. There were dresses and ensembles based on characters such as Marty McFly, Doctor Doom, Death, Kara Thrace, Loki, and so many more. Some outfits incorporated LEDs and impressive transformations, and more than a few of them included dangerous looking high heels. I was floored by the creativity on display.

There were a dazzling array of haute couture designs, and it was lovely to see geek apparel get fashion week treatment. I’ve never been to a show like this, but the runway and sea of blinking flashes from cameras looked just like what I’ve seen on television. I think these designs were much cooler than most (with the possible exception of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses).

The Evil Queen and Marty McFly took home top prizes. Designer Andrew MacLaine created a look based on Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. The dress changed from an everyday look to a stunning black ensemble. The transformation made the crowd go wild. Amy Beth Christenson came up with a rocking design that captured the essence of Back to the Future; it looked futuristic and awesome – the crowd oohed and aahed when the ensemble made its entrance onto the runway.

See several hot looks from the runway after the break.

During the Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con, Ashley Eckstein of Her Universe revealed a new line of clothing featuring characters from Studio Ghibli! She teased the team-up on Instagram recently and confirmed it by donning a haute couture Totoro dress at the fashion show.

Models wore items from the new Ghibli including tank tops and a Totoro cosplay dress. The Studio Ghibli items will be available exclusively at Hot Topic beginning this holiday season, and there will be designs for both men and women. My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service will be the first titles in the collection, but others will follow.

1ce0_dw_63_ladies_raglan_jersey_back

Cheering on sportsball teams doesn’t appeal to me, but geek jerseys are an idea I can get behind. Her Universe and Think Geek have just released a Doctor Who raglan jersey that has the logo on the front and the number 63 on the back. That represents the first year Doctor Who aired and is definitely an occasion to commemorate.

See the front of the jersey after the break.
