About the Authors:



Susanne Heldens


Susanne Heldens graduated in clothing and textile technology at University of Applied Sciences of M├Ânchengladbach (Dipl.Ing.). Her profound background includes over 20 years of experience working as a personnel developer in a leading international fashion company. She works as a freelancing consultant, trainer, coach (DVNLP) and lecturer.


The idea behind SCHNITTFORMEN evolved from various textile trainings and feedback from her participants. She realized there was a need to create a precise overview of clothing designs which is useful in day to day business, including the most commonly used cuts in various product categories and their technical terms. As an author of this booklet she often uses it in textile trainings/seminars.
