Today’s Mos Eisley Marketplace article features Star Wars fan and geek clothing designer Kirsty Hannam, of Prophecy Girl. The Prophecy Girl online store has recently opened for business, and among their initial designs is a gorgeous Rogue One inspired women’s top. The black racerback vest (tank top) features the Jyn Erso quote ‘I Rebel’, in a neat old-gold colour print.
Wear your rebellious side with pride, with our “I Rebel” black racerback vest top. Inspired by *that* moment in the Star Wars Rogue One trailer…just like Jyn Erso, we rebel too! This may have been inspired by our latest Rebel Alliance heroine, but frankly, it fits SO many scenarios. This vest is black, with old gold print.
Available in sizes S to XL, the vest is priced at £20.00 each (approximately US$25.36 each). Prophecy Girl is based in the UK, but can ship internationally, which is great!

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to ask Kirsty a few questions about her new clothing label Prophecy Girl, her favourite Star Wars fashion, and how she got started making geek fashion. Read on for the full interview and photos –
What inspired you to start designing and creating geek apparel?
Finding geeky clothing, designed for women, has always been a huge struggle for me. What little is available in the UK tends to be limited to low quality t-shirts, and so I found that I was often shipping things in from the USA, which gets pretty expensive. I couldn’t ﬁnd what I wanted, so started sketching out things that I’d like to wear myself. I’ve been a graphic designer for 10+ years, and an uber-fan of geek shows and ﬁlms my whole life, so the solution seemed obvious…start my own clothing brand!
What is the style concept for the Prophecy Girl range?
The mainstay of our collection is going to be smart-casual ladieswear, the kind of thing that will look cute with jeans, or dressed up for the ofﬁce. The ﬁrst item we’ll be offering in 2017 is a buttoned blouse, with “Peter Pan” style collar. The pattern has been drafted, and prototypes are being sewn up next week, which is so exciting! I’ve also designed skirts, dresses, and long-sleeved shirts. I’m currently working with a pattern cutter and factory here in the UK to develop them into ﬁnished garments, using fabrics which I’ve designed across lots of different geeky themes.
What are some of your favourite Star Wars fashion items in your wardrobe or wish list (can be something you’ve made/plan to make)?
I absolutely love my Po-Zu Rey boots, they’re so comfy I rarely take them off. The ﬁrst of our Star Wars items in the Prophecy Girl shop is our “I Rebel” vest top, which I’m deﬁnitely wearing to see Rogue One at the cinema!
Do you have any particular favourite Star Wars fashion brands (licensed or fan made)?
I’m a bit of a collector when it comes to jackets and coats, so Musterbrand have to be on my list of faves; their Jyn Erso jacket is my latest purchase and it’s fab. I’m excited to see the new Po-Zu Star Wars range of footwear when that launches. I also adore Sent From Mars on Etsy, her bags are amazing…deﬁnitely saving up for one of those!
Can you hint at any future Star Wars themed designs?
Star Wars is my ﬁrst love, so I have a laptop full of designs that I simply cannot wait to manufacture! I’ve already designed some Star Wars fabrics for use in our range of blouses and dresses, one of which is an Aurebesh pattern, along similar lines to our Sherlock Holmes “Dancing Men Code” design.
What fabrics are used for your printed apparel?
Our range of sweatshirts and tees are ethically manufactured in cotton-mix, and the next batch of these will be a super soft organic cotton. For our factory-made blouses, I’ve been working closely with a mill here in England who manufacture beautiful quality fabrics. They crinkle less, ﬂow & hang beautifully, and are easy to care for – ideal for work wear. These will be printed with my geeky designs and then cut and sewn into garments.
Do you ship worldwide?
Yes, we ship worldwide.
Where can fans ﬁnd Prophecy Girl on social media?
Many thanks to Kirsty for her time in answering my questions. I just love her Rogue One inspired tank top, and can’t wait to see her next Star Wars inspired apparel designs! It’s great to see creative fans adding their own designs to the world of Star Wars fashion, I sincerely wish the best success for Kirsty in her new venture.
