What is minimalism? It’s a recent concept that’s been cropping up everywhere; from interior decoration to furniture, art to fashion, everyone is talking about minimalism. But what exactly is this concept of minimalism? The dictionary defines the word ‘minimalism’ as an avant-garde movement in music characterized by the repetition of very short phrases which change gradually, producing a hypnotic effect. But this concept is all about music, what about fashion? Well, minimalism in fashion is all about having a select minimum of clothes and repeating them over and over again.
There are a number of individuals and organizations that promote the concept of minimalism. Some go so far as to claim that being a minimalist is all about living with just 100 things or less; this includes clothes, accessories, items in your kitchen, home, furniture and the like. But for the modern individual who loves to live her/his live in grand existence, can you really par down to just about 100 possession? An average working woman will have at least a 100 items in her closet itself! Is that not minimalism? Well, when it comes down to that, you can say that minimalism is the art of living with only the things that you absolutely need. In fashion terms, being a modern minimalist is about having items in your closet that offer more function, in style and in the number of ways you can wear the same piece!
