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.”
