Garment technology and pattern cutting

Garment technologists are responsible for ensuring that high quality and fit standards are met. Your role will involve carrying out fit sessions, liaising with suppliers and factories and seeing garments through the whole production process. This is a key role within fashion, allowing a garment to go from design concept to a reality in store.
Pattern cutters work closely with designers to create their designs, usually from sketches. You may be working manually or on a CAD system such as Gerber or Lectra. Pattern cutting is a highly creative role therefore an eye for detail and a flair for creativity is essential.
