Moving on, throughout art history, “minimalism” has been a favorite of the masters. Apparently, they aren’t the only ones who have adopted this way of life. Minimalism has become a rage in the world of fashion with enthusiasts painting the town with streaks of minimalistic fashion.
Now, what is minimalistic style or more simply, minimalism? According to our ever-so-dependable Oxford Dictionary, minimalism is the “deliberate lack of decoration or adornment in style or design”.
At first glance, minimalism seems like an incomplete approach but these fashionistas tell a different story all together.
