Her Universe Fashion Show unleashes the Power of Fashion at 6th annual event

This year’s Her Universe Fashion Show was all about the Power of Fashion, inspired by the hit animated series, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Twenty-four designs took the runway, all inspired by the powerful characters so many love and admire. Here are some highlights of the show, along with the winners!

The night started as it always does with a message from Ashley Eckstein, founder of Her Univserse, about the theme of the show. Ashely wore a transforming dress that took her from a stiff red look inspired by She-Ra protagonist Adora’s Horde uniform to the glistening white dress Adora wears when transformed.

Ashley shared that the messages of the show, that the power and strength you need is inside of you and in your friendships, is a core theme of the show and one of the many reasons it resonates with so many fans.
