Her Universe started in 2010 as a fashion and lifestyle brand for women in sci-fi and cosplayers. The brand’s founder Ashley Eckstein is also an actor and plays the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Eckstein explained in an interview with StarWars.com that the new Sisters Of The Force collection was designed with the women of Star Wars in mind.
“Sisters Of The Force, to me, represents women in Star Wars,” Eckstein said. “Whether it’s the characters, whether it’s the fans, whether it’s the women who work on Star Wars, there are all of these strong women who bring Star Wars to life ... I wanted to shine the spotlight on the women of Star Wars with this collection.”
Fans will find ombre dresses, super cool jackets, and graphic tees in this collection priced from $39 to $110. While the collection will officially debut at the Her Universe booth at the Chicago Star Wars Celebration, it will be available on HerUniverse.com beginning April 11.
Here’s everything Star Wars fans can expect in the collection.

Leia's Cape Coat
Although this cape isn't a direct pull from Princess Leia's iconic coat in the original Star Wars saga, it's a dope look for cosplayers. The cape coat is made of a textured jacquard fabric with a metal nameplate on the front.
Rose Tico Army Jacket
Rose Tico is a crew member supporting the starfighters in the 2017 film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the film, she's seen wearing a mustard utility jumpsuit and Her Universe reimagines it in this edgy army jacket.
