Comic Con fashion frenzy
San Diego, perhaps best known for annually hosting more than 130,000 comic book fans who descend on the city during Comic-Con International each July, has been the unlikely epicentre of a fashion movement that achieved every supervillain’s dream of taking over the world. To be specific: wearable pop culture.
Designers and models backstage at the recent Her Universe Fashion Show, during Comic-Con in San Diego. The show was a competitive event reminiscent of “Project Runway,” with more than 20 designers debuting pop-culture-inspired ensembles that would not have looked out of place amid John Galliano-era Dior or Lee McQueen-era Alexander McQueen.
