Pattern Cutter: Artist of the pieces of paper.

There are many students who fears Pattern Cutting, but do you know that a paper of pattern brings success for the designer and that a pattern cutter is also a talented artist?

Tran Chinh – the student at the London College for Design and Fashion said: “There are many friends of mine who thought that pattern cutting is only boring and complicated stuff, but for me, this is a marvelous method. The designs never become the real garments on the models in the sparkling catwalk without pattern cutting. I feel so excited when I use scissors, rulers and pencil to create Pattern; this seems to be a magician doing her job on the paper.
