MINIMALIST

I love the minimalist trend; and whilst I'm a huge sucker for busy prints and clashing colour, I know minimalism also has a lot to offer. Minimalism, known for using simple, large forms, in fashion relies on details, shapes, cuts and texture to give interest. There is a chic Japanese subtlety to it which appeals when in certain moods and can give you a clean canvas on which to apply ideas. Minimalism goes hand in hand with modern - but in the 50s and 60s, as trend makers looked to an imagined future for inspiration, art, architecture and fashion got a minimal makeover. It's a wearable trend that inspires a million BA fashion students experimenting with fabrics and tailoring to take their dreams to extremes.
