Industry Comments

I genuinely believe there is a need for a greater understanding of an individual woman’s body and how to facilitate correct patterns for this; it is very exciting to have a programme that will address this.

Caryn Franklyn MBE, Co-Founder of All Walks Beyond the Catwalk

There is a great need for creative technical people within the fashion industry and a masters course that promotes the value of these important tacit skills, will greatly enhance the standing of the pattern cutter.

The role of the creative pattern cutter is an interpretation of thedesigner’s vision and therefore equitable with the position of the fashion designer, in terms of esteem and remuneration. 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.

The course will 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 the development of such a specialised MA course would bring this to the forefront.

Dr Kevin Almond

I believe there is a distinct opportunity for a masters’ programme of this kind outside the London area. The UK fashion and textile industry demands creative yet skilled pattern cutters and I am sure that the MA will be more attractive to prospective applicants.
