The Her Universe Fashion Show rocked San Diego Comic-Con, so we caught up to chat with founder Ashley Eckstein about what’s next. Of course, we also talked to her about her role as Ahsoka in Star Wars: Rebels.

The Her Universe Fashion Show has quickly grown into a SDCC tradition, with wild and geeky fashion displayed in the classic runway environment. The event is a ton of fun, and it shows off some of the coolest geek-wear on the planet. Well, guess what? They’re turning the show into a full-on reality TV series on Comic-Con International SVOD channel, and we got the scoop from Eckstein on that project.

Eckstein also chatted a bit about her major Star Wars animated character Ahsoka, who recently made the transition from The Clone Wars to Star Wars: Rebels. She’s been a true creative spark to the new series, and Eckstein opens up about the character’s impact and the riskiness involved in creating this strong, female character.
