From the Press Release
Her Universe™, a leader in female genre merchandise, announced a license deal with AMC to create a collection of women’s apparel based on the network’s series “The Walking Dead.” “The Walking Dead” by Her Universe collection, featuring images, characters and phrases from “The Walking Dead” series on fashion tops, leggings, hoodies and dresses, will be available online at HerUniverse.com, San Diego Comic-Con and select retail outlets beginning this summer.
“There is certainly an expanding fan base of women who faithfully watch ‘The Walking Dead,’ and this collection of unique apparel and merchandise is targeted just for them,” said Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein. “I am a huge fan of ‘The Walking Dead,’ and I was thrilled with the opportunity to design zombie fashion for fangirls. The story lines on this show are very emotional, compelling and addicting! As a fan, I am excited to have more apparel options made for women.”
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” reigns as the most watched drama series on television for Adults 18-49. The series tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse and has garnered two Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Prosthetic Make-up and a Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Television Series–Drama.
Ashley Eckstein is founder of Her Universe and known to sci-fi/pop-culture fans as the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Eckstein and Her Universe will be sponsoring and hosting a panel on Saturday, July 20th, from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm in Room 24ABC. For this year’s panel, entitled, “Her Universe: Geek Girl Fashion – A Discussion Between Fashion Professionals and Fans,” Eckstein is bringing together the decision-makers in the genre fashion industry and the fans for an open discussion including retailer Hot Topic’s Ed LaBay (Senior Buyer Licensed Apparel), Mallory Leveille (Buyer Licensed Accessories), and Misty Rodriguez (Associate Buyer Womens Licensed Apparel) as well as freelance writer Lisa Granshaw (NBC’s “Today” show website TODAY.com, The Daily Dot & BlastR), Cambria Beauvais (former Director of Brand Assurance at Striker Entertainment), and fashion writer Justin Howard (The New York Times Company, Yahoo, About.com, and Examiner.com).
