Comic-Con News: The Business of Geek Fashion

San Diego Comic-Con is just a week away and we want to announce some of the events Hero Within will be participating in. What makes Comic-Con so amazing is the unique intersection of fashion, fandom and the industry. If you've never been before, the energy and creativity around geek couture is unparalleled. Whether it's cosplay, everyday cosplay or something inspired from a favorite fandom, Comic-Con is the place to see the future fashion trends of geek culture. Between the Her Universe Fashion Show, apparel vendors and a number of panels, Comic-Con is an incredible place to be inspired as a young fashion designer or entrepreneur. I will be appearing on the Business of Geek Fashion panel on Saturday morning and honored to be among an esteemed group of panelists. Please show your support for Hero Within- and I would love to meet you!
