Senior Show, Franklin TN

This Friday the O'more college of design will be showcasing it's annual Senior Design show. This show is so much fun to go to and see all the budding designers and raw talent. This show, sponsored by The Factory at Franklin, displays color boards, prints, models and many more creative applications to show off their stuff.


O'more College

The college was founded in 1970 by Eloise Pitts O'More. She patterned the school after Le College Feminin in Paris, France, where Pitts studied in the late 1920s, and was aimed at women, who were traditionally not involved in the design fields. O'More began the college with nine students in her home. Since Pitts death in 2002, the college has passed into the hands of Dr. Mark Hilliard. He continues to "fan the flame" of creativity. It was originally founded as O'More School of Interior Architecture and Design and is located in the historic district of Franklin. It is a non-traditional, accredited college awarding the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior DesignFashion Design & Merchandising, and Visual Communications which includes Graphic DesignAdvertising & Animation. It has an enrollment of about 200 students each year, and the grounds and school are amazing.

  1. I love Franklin. Is Miss Martha Tea Shop still there? I was part of The Iron Gate for a while. Then, she opened her own place. My boys still remember her Strawberry cake. Yum!

    Please stop by for my newest post on renovating our home.

  8. The Ray Ban wayfarer model is
    legendary and is probably one of the most famous types of neon sunglasses.
    It was worn on a number of famous 1980's classics like Miami Vice and it was also used on a number of other famous TV shows throughout the 80's.
    These sunglasses are made by Ray Banand during the 1980's it seemed

    that everybody in Hollywood would wear them.
