Location: University of Huddersfield, UK
Date: 6th - 7th February 2013

Deadline for all submitted abstracts is Sunday 1st April 2012.

* Is creative pattern cutting a luxury only practiced in designer led fashion, what place does it have within the high street?
* How can the fashion industry generate ingenious and imaginative pattern cutting at mass market prices?
* What is the role of creative pattern cutting in higher education fashion courses?

* How can practical experiences of traditional and emerging processes in creative pattern cutting be successfully documented and promoted?

* In what ways does the creative pattern cutter break rules?
