Watch: Is the Star Wars Trend for Real? [theFashionDish]

In the latest clip from theFashionDish, a new tFS original series, our six panelists discuss the Star Wars trend that made its first appearance at the Rodarte show in New York before making its way to London, where it popped up at Preen. Although nostalgia is always present in fashion, this was, as moderator Julie Bensman put it, as literal as you could possibly get. So what's the deal with fashion's Star Wars resurgence? We do our best to get to the bottom of it in the clip above.
