About this product
- DescriptionFashion kckoffs are everywhere. Even in the out-of-the-way markets of highland Guatemala, fake branded clothes offer a cheap, stylish alternative for people who cant afford high-priced originals. Fashion companies have taken tice, ensuring that international trade agreements include stronger intellectual property protections to prevent brand piracy. In Regulating Style, Kedron Thomas approaches the fashion industry from the perspective of indigeus Maya people who make and sell kckoffs, asking why they copy and wear popular brands, how they interact with legal frameworks and state institutions that criminalize their livelihood, and what is really at stake for fashion companies in the global regulation of style.
