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 Design, Fashion Design & Merchandising, and Visual Communications which includes Graphic Design, Advertising & Animation. It has an enrollment of about 200 students each year, and the grounds and school are amazing.
