A little while ago, I blogged about some thoughts I had on the Uniform project. I was therefore interested to come across a couple of posts about the same topic over at my favourite academic fashion blog, threadbared. (Are there any others? I’d like to know if there are!).
The original post and its follow up aren’t really related to the sustainability/ethics angle I was talking about, but they make some excellent points about the position of style bloggers in the system of contemporary capitalism and the tension between individuality and conformity. I am so glad to have escaped academia before ending up with a PhD but do love a good bit of academic discourse!
