Her Universe holding SDCC fashion show. Ashley Eckstein’s fangirl clothing line will hold a “fashion show and design competition” during the convention. “Designs must be fashions, not costumes, and can be ‘geek couture’ or ready-to-wear outfits.” The winning designers will get a chance to collaborate with Ashley on a line for Hot Topic.
“These images have impacted us greatly both as young women and as adults.” Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the masterminds behind Rodarte, talk about Star Wars and their Star Wars gowns on the StarWars.com blog today..
At New York Fashion Week yesterday, Rodarte showed several dresses featuring Star Wars stills. The Star Wars dresses were made with the blessing of George Lucas (who was spotted at their show in 2012) and Disney, according to the L.A. Times. They won’t be for sale, but “will be available in the fall for editorial shoots and potential exhibits,” which means we may see them in magazines at the very least. You can get a closer look at the dresses on our Tumblr.
Rodarte is based in L.A. and has done film costumes in the past – for Natalie Portman’s Black Swan, for instance. So when asked about Episode VII, “Who wouldn’t’? I’m sure they are taken care of, but who wouldn’t do it?”

We’re still going strong over on Tumblr, though I have been very lax at mentioning it here. Here are few things that haven’t made the blog proper.
High fashion. Remember the Star Wars spread in the April 1999 issue of Vogue? It featured several of Queen Amidala’s costumes from The Phantom Menace.
Long reads. How obsessive fans built a better Han Solo blaster is strangely fascinating. Or maybe drop the ‘strangely.’
A Major Award. Of course there’s a Star Wars version of the lamp from A Christmas Story.. Of course.
It is the year of the GIF, after all. Who doesn’t love the floating head of Ewan McGregor?
Quick hits. Was that a dead Jaxxon on The Clone Wars? The Star Trek Into Darkness poster gets a Star Wars remix There are already Scoundrels costumes! And no roundup is complete without Star Wars infographics.
Highsnobiety has an up-close look at some of the fall/winter 2011 collection from their Star Wars Originals line.
As captured by Boing Boing’s Xeni in San Francisco, a window display that doesn’t exactly make us think of fashion… Though it is pretty cool.
