School Notes:

As 1980s approached, Patricia O'Connor, an educator and entrepreneur, decided to fill this fashion void by founding Fashion Careers College (FCC), formerly Fashion Careers of California College. Approved by the Department of Education and State of California, FCC became a nationally accredited college by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools in 1979. Fashion Careers College is situated directly across from Mission Bay, a popular year-round recreation spot. Conveniently located near all major freeways, the school is just minutes away from San Diego's new and expanding regional centers including Fashion Valley, Mission Valley, University Towne Center, The Forum Mall and Horton Plaza. At FCC, we offer a wide-range of study programs to further fuel your interest in fashion while developing your career path through various internship opportunities, field trips, and elective tours that expose you to real-life experiences. We offer Specialized Associate Degree Programs, Certificate Programs and Short Term Seminars.
