O’More College of Design, founded as O'More School of Interior Architecture and Design in 1970, is located in the historic district of Franklin, Tennessee, in the United States. It is a non-traditional, accredited college awarding the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design, Fashion Design & Merchandising, and Visual Communications which includes Graphic Design & Advertising. The Interior Design department of O'More College prepares its students for professional advancement through preparation for the NCIDQ exam. The Visual Communications department encompasses a variety of traditional print disciplines along with the latest technology-based areas such as interactive, experience and motion graphics. The Fashion Design Department allows students to learn about the fashion industry and present their garments or business plans in the school's annual fashion show. It has an enrollment of about 220. The Interior Design Department has been FIDER accredited since 1974. The fashion department presents their annual Awear Fashion Show every May, which showcases original designs by students. The fashion show is presented in part with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and is produced by students in the Fashion Show Production Class. Mrs. Eloise Pitts O'More founded the college and patterned it after Le College Feminin in Paris, France, where she studied interior design and dance. She lived on the O'More campus and remained involved in the college's operations until her death in 2002, at the age of 95. The college occupies six acres (24,000 m²) of park-like land, and includes the Abbey Leix Mansion, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. O'More has a cooperative agreement with Middle Tennessee State University which allows its students access to the resources of MTSU's College of Design.
