Commenting on everything from blackface fashion editorials to the politics of hijab, THREADBARED has appeared in a wide range of other print and new media from Chronicle of Higher Education, Salon, Racialicious, Jezebel, Muslimah Media Watch, Feministing, Bitch Magazine, Sociological Images and Women’s News Network to fashion-focused outlets like No Good for Me, Style Sample and Sketchbook magazines.

“Mimi and Minh-Ha are important voices to listen to because they comprehensively decode the messages coming from all sides of the industry, bringing the potential dangers of their meanings out into the open.” Tavi Gevinson, Style Rookie

“Threadbared is the only fashion blog I read regularly. It’s really remarkable. It’s fun and the writing is good….It’s like a really interesting cultural studies course – it’s American studies, gay and lesbian studies, transnational issues. It takes it all very seriously, but the site doesn’t take itself seriously.” Monica Miller, author of Slaves to Fashion: Black Dandyism and the Styling of Black Diasporic Identity, Associate Professor in English, Barnard College

“Stylish brainiacs!” No Good For Me

“Academics and fashion seem as far apart as Rush Limbaugh and the NFL (sports-reference to prove my manliness), but this blog makes it work.” The Sunday Best

“…a great fashion blog run by two ‘clotheshorse academics,’ Minh-ha Pham and Mimi Thi Nguyen (one of the smartest people I know). It’s a great mix of exuberance and analysis that takes seriously the larger, oft-ignored forces that always mediate our sense of ‘style,’ whether we care to acknowledge them or not.” Hua Hsu, The Atlantic

“Hands-down the most intelligent, thoughtful, and passionate blog about fashion.” Sarah Scaturro, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

“I highly recommend [Threadbared] for fashionable cultural criticism.” Eileen Boris, Professor and Chair of the Department of Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara

“Threadbared, hautest of the academic couture blogs!” Heather Zwicker, Associate Professor of English at the University of Alberta

“Smart fashion is hard to find. That’s what Threadbared is—smart fashion, not fast fashion. Thuy Linh Tu, author of The Beautiful Generation: Asian Americans and the Cultural Economy of Fashion

“It’s the best and there isn’t anything like it out there!” Christina Moon, Assistant Professor of Fashion Studies, Parsons the New School for Design

“Threadbared is a blog by two junior faculty ladies with teaching and research interests in the politics of fashion and beauty. They are pretty much spot-on about everything, particularly representations of race and class.” Atoms Arranged

“Also! Threadbared blog is BANANAS AWESOME.” The Rejectionist

“Thank you for producing a smart, engaged fashion blog!” Museum at FIT
