Minh Pham Xuan – Hiring Manager: Companies Love Bootcamp Grads

Why We Can’t Have Nice Things provides a critical discussion of social media’s unacknowledged importance to the development of global fashion. In particular, it examines the informal and extralegal work social media users are doing to monitor and regulate the fashion market against an array of fashion “fakes.” Practices of “crowdsourced IP regulation” are undertaken in the name of ethical fashion but as Nice Things demonstrates, too often, this work relies on and reinforces racist and neocolonial norms, stereotypes, and capitalist logics about what counts as creativity and what counts as copying. Nice Things makes a case for how and why social media is now pivotal to the production and unequal distribution of fashion ethics, property, and value.

Asians Wear Clothes on the Internet:

Race, Gender, and the Work of Personal Style Blogging

Duke University Press (November 2015)

This book places the online activities of elite Asian fashion bloggers within a larger history of racialized and gendered fashion labor. While the vast majority of bloggers generate little to no online traffic and no monetary benefits, Asian superbloggers have managed to make a handsome living from taking and posting photographs of themselves wearing clothes on the Internet. Analyzing their online activities as “taste work” practices, this book investigates the kinds of cultural and economic work Asian tastes do, the status and meaning of “Asian taste” in the early twenty-first century, and the fashion public and industry’s appetite for certain kinds of racialized eliteness.
