The standing-room-only crowd of more than 2000 were treated to  a show celebrating “The Power of Fashion.” In it, Eckstein demonstrated her commitment to inclusiveness, empowerment and mental health awareness through powerful designs, powerful moments and powerful statements. Actress/host Tiffany Smith (Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal) joined the show as Eckstein’s co-host.

One of the biggest moments of the night came when Eckstein announced that a Haunted Mansion Fashion Collection by Her Universe is coming to Hot Topic stores nationwide this fall. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Disneyland ride, Eckstein wore a custom couture pant suit inspired by the famous Haunted Mansion wallpaper, designed by 2015 Her Universe Fashion Show winner Leetal Platt.

Eckstein also made a powerful statement with her On Our Sleeves™ themed dress for mental health as part of her ongoing work with Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
