“How do I become a successful pattern cutter”? As industry veterans, we get asked this question constantly from our students and the answer I know all too well. My pattern cutting tutor at college used to say “You have to have the 4 P’s – Persistence, Perseverance, Passion and Patience” to become successful in the fashion industry.
If you are new to manual pattern cutting and sewing on an industrial machine don’t let it scare you, take your time and practice the techniques involved in creating a pattern, the basics – straight and curved lines/seams until you become confident with the task at hand. Not all of my students like sewing, but I always encourage you to have these life skills under your belt especially as employers are expecting you to have more than one skill to bring to the table. In other words, you need to stand out and be willing to take part in continuous professional development.
We teach on various levels of fashion courses, assisting graduates, create patterns for international designers and independent sewing designers. We have helped launch the careers of many fashion graduates in universities to go on to shape the creative industries worldwide and we would be honoured to assist you in your creative journey.
If you’re creating a fashion portfolio or just starting in fashion education, we’ve got you covered. Our aim is to make learning fashion design the technical processes of pattern making, fashion draping and sewing uncomplicated, relaxing with easy to follow.
Using an online platform, our courses can be completed anywhere you are, further proving the power of the digital age.
