Abstract

The First International Symposium for Creative Pattern Cutting is the first global conference to
promote contemporary research into the art of creative cut and its significance within the fashion
industry. The symposium aims to provide a platform for pattern cutters, fashion designers, students, and educators to explore the impact and direction for creative pattern cutting.

Testimonials from the fashion industry and education include;

"The symposium is really important to the fashion industry."
Timo Rissanen, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability,
Parsons The New School for Design, New York.

"Am delighted with the response your initiative has created it is a timely
and welcome event"
Dr Betty Jackson CBE, Fashion Designer.

"Congratulations on convening this, it is really exciting and timely!"
Lucy Jones, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore.

At the British Fashion Council's Creative Cut Seminar, April 2012 Anne Tyrrell MBE Chair
of the Colleges Council warmly congratulated the University of Huddersfield for organizing
The First International Symposium in Creative Pattern Cutting. She said; "It is essential that
graduates realise that the career path in these creative skills is a very exciting one and they
would be very much in demand. We have got to emphasise that it is as important as design
and a designer needs a partnership with a Creative Pattern Cutter to achieve the strength of
their collection. It is the technical skills in this area that are paramount and exciting and I think
the Symposium brings this to the forefront, which is brilliant."
