Q: What does "Beautiful garments that speaks with a level of elegance and modesty in mind"

Is there another way to say that easier? "a level of elegance/modesty in mind" - What does this phrase mean exactly? mean?

"a fair amount of"

"a decent amount of"

(maybe) "a degree of"

It means there is some, but not a huge amount. It's a way to sound restrained or careful. You use it when you don't want to exaggerate.
