Star Wars Day: 10 times the epic sci-fi opera inspired the fashion industry

Star Wars Day: The fashion industry embraced the galaxy war opera and turned it into something more than a movie craze with collaborations between the franchise and leading designer labels.

With the ever-evolving fashion trends, it is very difficult to keep a tab on what is in and what’s not. Most trends are made by A-listers, not to forget, leading fashion weeks, but there are times when movies induce a craze too. Well, it’s hardly surprising as these movies have a fan base of billions, spread across the globe. So the franchise and the fashion industry alike try to tap this market.

One such example is fashion inspired by the Star Wars series. Bloomingdale hosted a big-budget charity auction “Force 4 Fashion”, while Christian Louboutin created heels inspired by Daisy Ridley’s character Rey. Rodarte too launched a collection as a tribute to them.

Although some of them were too experimental and not really wearable, others were smartly brought together in the form of casual tees, sweaters and accessories. Not just in terms of mass retailing stores, Star Wars-inspired designs were also seen on ramp walks.
