Additional Information: This submission contains an international journal paper (2018) with supporting evidence in the form of an international peer reviewed conference abstract and presentation (IFFTI). The research is a critique of pattern technology and creative innovation in relation to pedagogical benefits of breaking traditional rules. It is about creating something new by crossing boundaries and disrupting pre-conceived ideas by drawing on different methods and epistemological perspectives. The research explores the use of disorderly forces leading to the development of new approaches for teaching in the creative disciplines. The application of this knowledge to pattern cutting both in industry and education, has the potential to enrich the clothing and fashion industry as it encourages pattern cutters to develop essential skills to cross discipline boundaries resulting in new, novel and innovative clothing. This research was developed through synthesising work presented at an international conference “Creative Cut” in which the authors (Power and Almond) were co-organisers. The conference abstracts were published with Huddersfield university press and the plenary was in the public domain and acted as the foundation for the paper presented above. Further to this the Authors co-edited a special edition of The International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education, which peer reviewed a selection of the 36 papers presented at the conference (Feb 2016).
