Founded in 1978, the FIDM Museum & Galleries Foundation, Inc. provides students, researchers, designers, and the public with resources to examine the roles of historic fashion, accessories, textiles, jewelry, fragrance, and related ephemera in their relationship to society, history, art, and technology. The collections are sustained by standard museum practices for continual acquisition, preservation, and display. Educational, outreach, and volunteer programs support the scholarly interpretation of the collections. The FIDM Museum and Galleries are part of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, which was founded in 1969 by current FIDM President Tonian Hohberg. Hohberg’s vision was the creation of an exciting learning environment within which students could master art and design disciplines. Beginning with the first downtown Los Angeles campus, FIDM has grown to four campuses (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco) and 20 majors.
