Blanche Payne Award Recipient

Amanda K Smith is a senior in the Product Development Track of the Textile and Apparel Management program. Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Amanda always had her sights set on Mizzou. However, it was not until her sophomore year that she found her true home in the TAM department. During the summer of 2015, Amanda pursued her love of travel through a study abroad program in Florence, Italy. In the fall of 2015, Amanda was a recipient of the P.U.R.E (Program for Undergraduate Research Experiences) Grant. She used the P.U.R.E grant to work with Dr. Jean Parsons to explore the methods, uses, and benefits of pleating throughout history and in the apparel industry. After graduation Amanda is looking forward to diving into the fashion industry by relocating to Fort Myers, Florida where she will be working as an Assistant Merchant for CHICO’S FAS.

The Blanche Payne Scholarship for Textile & Apparel Design is a $5,000 award given by the International Textile and Apparel Association for outstanding design scholarship and professional promise. The Award is Named after Payne, author of the classic textbook, History of Costume: From the Ancient Egyptians to the Twentieth Century, and students who have had either a design or research presentation accepted for the annual meeting may choose to submit an additional proposal based on their design process.

These services will target more than 2,000 Missouri residents across 21 counties, with a particular emphasis on helping low-resource families improve their healthy relationship and marriage skills, parenting and coparenting skills, personal well-being, and economic stability. The project also involves collaboration with MU’s Assessment Resource Center to evaluate the effectiveness of text-message tips as a follow up to maintain levels of improved relationship quality, and Learfield Communications, Inc. who will assist with a targeted public advertising campaign.
