A two day masterclass with the British fashion designer and professor Julian Roberts. He is not least known for having developed the cutting method that he calls ”subtraction cutting”.

Subtraction cutting is a pattern cutting technique, also called zero waste, which means to make the most of the negative spaces, using fabric pieces that are left over after cutting. It is a sort of mix between traditional fabric cutting and draping – and the result is experimental garments that challenges the shape of classic clothing.
