Anya Ayoung Chee – Project Runway Season 9 Winner

And so it shall be done. Reggae Jesus smiled on Anya Ayoung Chee last night as she became the winner of Season 9 of Project Runway. An amazing feat for a small island girl who learned to sew only four months before the season started. Today is the proud winner of $100,000 to start her own line, an editorial feature in Marie Claire magazine, the opportunity to sell a fashion line on Piperlime.com and a $50,000 technology suite from Hewlett-Packard. In addition, thanks to thousands of dedicated supporters on Twitter, she won the Fan Favorite and an additional $10,000 which will be invested in a microfinance account for young creatives in Trinidad and Tobago.

Anya, always gracious and fashion forward is a reminder that dreams do come true, obstacles can be overcome and that Sweet Trinidad and Tobago is a small republic with amazing talent and a lot of heart.

Congratulations Anya! You have made thousands of Trinidadians proud.
