It seems easier to define what minimalism is not than what it really is. It can be taken as a starting point, a blank sheet of paper where it all begins. The designer can come back to it to redefine their creativity.1
Fashion choices reflect what we know and think about ourselves at a given moment. I emphasize this temporariness because we are constantly learning, maturing. Besides, our lifestyle and needs are changing as well. We prioritize intellectual development, but we are aware that the right clothes are both an expression of the personal status quo and a complement to it. Someone said they start telling our story before we say anything. Therefore, I think it’s better to create this story consciously by working on our own style that will be consistent with who we are and how we want to be perceived.
