Regulating Style: Intellectual Property Law and the Business of Fashion in Guatemala

Description

Fashion knockoffs are far and wide. Even within the out-of-the-way markets of highland Guatemala, fake branded clothes offer a cheap, stylish alternative for those that can’t come up with the money for high-priced originals. Fashion companies have taken notice, 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 point of view of indigenous Maya individuals who make and sell knockoffs, asking why they copy and wear popular brands, how they have interaction with legal frameworks and state institutions that criminalize their livelihood, and what’s in reality at stake for fashion companies within the global regulation of style.
