Talking Her Universe Fashion With Founder Ashley Eckstein!

My day is always made better when I get to have a chat with the one and only founder of Her Universe, Ashley Eckstein. With D23 Expo coming up a the end of the week and the promise of a Haunted Mansion Collection coming to Hot Topic lingering in the air, there was a lot to talk about!

There are a lot of fabulous new Her Universe designs coming to D23 Expo 2019! It’s hard to even know where to start! I think it’s fitting that we discuss the first pair of Her Universe Ears coming to the Disney Parks Designer Collection as D23 Expo attendees will have the opportunity to snag a pair before they come to shopDisney and Parks on October 4th.



Ashley is super proud of these Princess Leia inspired Ears. We have seen pictures but, as we got to see at the recent signing at Hollywood Studios, these Ears are so much more impressive in person than we ever could have imagined! The Ears themselves are made of crushed velvet and there are crystals all over the bow! They are not Swarovski (can you imagine the price if they were?!) as Ashley insisted they wanted to keep the Ears affordable for fellow fashionistas.



The headband is white pleather and the inside of the Ears says Hope. Star Wars loving fashionistas will love that hidden touch as well as the silver metal hardware which is a tribute to Princess Leia herself.

Ashley will be signing these beauties at Talent Central at D23 Expo this coming weekend. She also hinted that this is NOT the only pair of Her Universe Ears coming to the Disney Parks Designer Collection and that the other pair(s) are inspired by some of her favorite characters. I’m hoping for Cinderella!



If you are more interested in clothing, there is a lot to choose from there, as well. We had told you about the Dapper Dan dress and the Castle Balloon skirt coming to the Dream Store at the Expo and we have learned that they are, in fact, limited edition. They were created for the Expo and it is doubtful we will be able to find them online. If you are heading to the Expo, you will have to fight me for that Dapper Dan dress! It shall be mine! (Don’t worry, I won’t hurt anyone).

I asked Ashley what she was most excited for and she told me it was a dream to collaborate with Danny Haus on the Ashoka Tano tee. She loves his work and his style (so do we!) and the collaboration was a dream come true. If you would rather have the image on a poster, that’s an option, as well. Ashley will be signing at the BoxLunch booth on Saturday and Sunday (check the times on the D23 Expo App).

I asked Ashley about the Haunted Mansion Collection she revealed news about during the Her Universe Fashion Show last month. I learned that it will be coming to Hot Topic, Boxlunch and Her Universe and consists of men’s, women’s and plus-sized items. It is going to have over 10 pieces in the collection! I will be stalking those stores for a glimpse of this collection and keep you posted.

As always, Ashley brightened my day by taking the time to chat with me. I want to thank her for taking time out of her insanely busy schedule! I can’t wait to see her this weekend!
