Comic Con fashion frenzy

The Hamilton Spectator - - STYLE - NEW YORK TIMES

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.
