CARMARTHEN SCHOOL OF ART:
The Fashion: Design and Construction programme at Carmarthen School of Art, Coleg Sir Gar has evolved in response to contemporary fashion culture and recent developments within the fashion design industry. The programme aims to develop students’ abilities and confidence in designing and constructing garments through practice-led experience and processes that foster the development of individual design identity. Class sizes are small and tutor contact is second to none. Students, including the current final year, are also actively encouraged to place sustainability at the center of their fashion designs.
