MANHATTAN -- An apparel design and production student from Kansas State University recently received an award for her exemplary fashion design using alpaca fibers.
Leeann Armstrong, senior from Topeka, was awarded a $500 scholarship for her third-place submission in the Fiber to Fashion design competition.
The scholarship is funded by the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association and includes a sponsored trip with other winners in November for the national association conference in Reno, Nev.
"I was very excited to receive the award and I am honored to have been chosen for this experience," Armstrong said.
Designs were judged on how well each designer interpreted the overall theme of "Alpaca -- Coloring Our World." Students were to use alpaca fiber in a dynamic, exciting and dramatic way.
