Less is More? Minimalism

'Also minimalism is a term that all of us who share so little in common and who are lumped together as minimalists are not terribly happy with.' -Ann Beattie
 
In an attempt to completely liberate art from the ties of tradition, the Minimalists concentrated on the diea behind art and stripped down the industrial materials they used to their most fundamental states. Basic works on simple geometric shapes, they reduced their colour, shapes, lines and textures in order to abandon any sign of personal expression.

Despite the fact that I have never studied anything related to art, fashion or design in my mind I have a list of designers I believe are minimalists! Maybe they are not but then again I am free to express my opinion of their work, are not I? Take a look at some of their collections you will get my point.
