Biz Sherbert, a theorist and writer focused on online fashion and Gen Z subcultures, joins Outsider Theory to discuss the current landscape of digital fashion, the shifting nature of subcultures, and the persistence of hauntological nostalgia of contemporary culture. We consider the acceleration of the trend cycle in online spaces and how it dramatizes the evolving relationship between present and past, explore the strange fusion of counterculture with the norms it once rejected in trad, normie, and basic aesthetics, and reflect on the political correlates of this development.
