From fashion authority Elyssa Dimant--author of the award-winning Fashioning Fabrics and co-curator of the acclaimed "WILD: Fashion Untamed" exhibition at the Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art--Minimalism and Fashion is a groundbreaking, provocative exploration of the influence of minimalist art and minimalist design on the fashion industry from the 1960s to the present. A foreword by celebrated designer Francisco Costa, the women's creative director of Calvin Klein Collection, illuminates how minimalism continues to inform fashion as modern design carries us into the future of couture.
