Step 1- ORDER IN CHOAS
If you are an artist, a creative or simply your zodiac sign is not in Virgo, your mind can feed off messiness and chaos. You even may have a ‘ perfect order in chaos’ kingdom, you know exactly where everything is. You know where even the most unimportant things are located so when somebody dares to attempt to clean up the clutter you may freak out! You can dive your hand in a bag full of items (including trash) and still can pick the lipstick you wanted to take out at one try (without looking). Hear you. But time to let go girl. There are tons of other important things your brain needs space for.
If you are an individual whose brain is wired normal and are a tidy person just skip to Step 3.
Step 2 – Decluttering the Room
First thing first, ‘ perfect order in chaos’ Queens we know you may haaate tiding up and rather spend this time more creatively on other important stuff but we promise you’ll be happy at the end of 12 steps.
You need to declutter the room first, because you will take all the clothes out, so you’ll need some space. No, you can’t do this ritual while everything is still sitting in the closet, gotta take at least the part of the closet you’d work on out .
Step 3 – Empty Out
Start separating textile from other materials and objects. If you like to keep your jewelry in the drawer of the closer for instance, take’em out. If you keep notebooks, pencils, lamps, shoes (hope not) or anything else in the closet that’s not a textile product, they all need to be taken out. Your closet is not a “container “
Note: Bags can be an exception.
Step 4 – SORT OUT
Shorts on one side, T-shirts on the other side, Pants on top of pants, blouses on the other corner placed on similar blouses… Assorting and folding the similar, sorting out, matching the length of items is the most essential part of organizing a closet. This is the most time consuming part of the work. Do this on the bed, don’t place them yet.
Step 5- Color Grade the Feed, O0PS SORRY ‘ THE CLOSET ‘
Now that everything is folded, time to have fun before we get into the more emotional stages. COLOR CODING. When you open the closet, it should look nice and pleasing to the eye. That’s the first vibe you’ll encounter first thing in the morning and it should spark a joy in your heart. Since you’re an expert on social media color grading feeds perfectly, the same grading techniques apply to the closets. Start placing the items in the closet from light colors to darker colors. Almost there.
Step 6- Let Go
Emotional parting with some of the clothes… Notice how many unworn pieces there are in your closet. Spot the ones that is/if
2- Older than at least more than 2-3 years

STEP 8- DECORATION
1- Changing color of the nearby walls. Power of a color should never be underestimated. Pastel shades or bright hues would do the trick. Here’s a few Pantone color codes for inspiration : 9241, 9320, 9044, 14-3612
2- Adding a few drops of parfume on piece of fabric or a strongly-scented soap and tuck them in the drawer/closet.
3- Adding low voltage lighting to the darker corners or throughout the closet.

1- Fabrics of your clothes : As much as caring for a healthy diet, one should be aware of clothes that touches one’s skin. Choosing as organic, airy, chemical-free eco-friendly fabrics as possible is very important. Minzkou Vegan-friendly Silk Collection can be the perfect example of giving your body the most precious gift of Nature. It’s also cruelty-free.
2- Caring the clothes : Don’t be lazy to read washing instructions of the items. Treat them how they deserve, wash accordingly. Yes, that including washing them by hand.
3- Fast fashion victims : Don’t have to keep up with each trend looking same as others. Remember that trends won’t last long. Attend trends if it aligns with your style. Your body and wardrobe deserves more quality clothes than cheap fast fashion products.
4- Treat nicer: Don’t throw it on the floor or step on it. You will later on wear it on your beautiful body. (Well, with most of Minzkou products you wouldn’t dare to throw it back and forth because it contains hundreds of bead embellishment, it would hurt you to see it on the floor… )
