              Abstract

              INSUFFICIENT ALLURE
              THE ART OF CREATIVE PATTERN CUTTING
              Kevin Almond and Kathryn Brennand
              7 April – 2 June

              This research exhibition highlights the important role of the pattern cutter in the fashion industry one which is as significant and creative as the role of the fashion designer. Before any garment is made a pattern needs to be produced from the initial garment design. The pattern is usually adapted from a block shape that fits the human form. This is adapted and manipulated to create the desired shape and look of the design. It is then placed onto cloth and the shape of the pattern is cut out. The sewing machinist will then sew the garment together. The exhibition emphasizes the creativity of pattern cutting. The display includes calico garments produced by students and staff in the fashion department at University of Huddersfield. Photographs and text provide a critical review of the pattern cutter’s integral position in context to creative fashion design.
