Pattern Cutter in London, UK. LCDF - Hanoi Graduate 2012
I had chance to study in UK and worked for a fashion company after graduation. I’ve realized that pattern cutting seems not to be interesting for me at the beginning but then be a very important part in fashion production because this technique helps to build proper form and finish the products at high quality.
