Located in numerous cities around the state of California, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) is a private institution that operates for profit. It grants degrees in a variety of fields, such as the fashion industry, the entertainment industry, the beauty industry, interior design, and graphic design. Tonian Hohberg, who is now the president and chief executive officer of the institution, established the college in 1969.

The institution provides students with the opportunity to acquire one of 26 different associate of arts degrees, one of nine different Bachelor of Arts degrees, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in business management, which may also be earned via online learning. In addition, students may get a Master of Business Administration degree from the institution.

The Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior Institution and University Commission has granted the college its accreditation. The classification has been modified from "Accredited" to "Accredited with Notice of Concern" as a result of a commission evaluation in 2019 which found concerns in the areas of sustainability and faculty supervision. Additionally, it has accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, making it a member institution of that organisation (NASAD).

There is just one campus of the institution located in Los Angeles. Clive Wilkinson is responsible for the campus's strikingly contemporary architecture.

The main campus of FIDM is located in Los Angeles, and it offers cutting-edge classrooms and study areas, as well as a design studio and the FIDM Museum and Galleries. The heart of Union Square serves as the setting for the San Francisco campus. Lofts, an indoor/outdoor student lounge, vibrant colours, and a one-of-a-kind audiovisual igloo are just some of the features that make the award-winning Orange County campus a visual experience. Students have the option of beginning their academic careers at the Orange County or San Francisco campuses; but, in order to continue their education at the Los Angeles campus, they will need to transfer.
