And the Project Runway Winner Is...

by at . Comments

Anya Ayoung-Chee proved on Project Runway this year that experience is overrated.

Having only learned to sew four months before appearing on season nine, this 29-year old overcame the competition last night and was crowned the Lifetime program's latest winner. She earned $100,000 for the accomplishment, along with a spread in Marie Claire, a $50,000 technology suite and the opportunity to design and sell a collection on Piperlime dot com.

Anya thanked the entire panel after being crowed the champion, specifically citing Heidi Klum for her praise and guidance all season long.

"It's a turning point in my life that I'll never, ever, ever be able to forget," Ayoung-Chee said.

I agree with you CHERRY. The fact that she won is absurd to me and let's me know that true talent is no longer rewarded on this show. I can no longer continue to watch if this is their new agenda.

When a winner that sews and designs like a 3rd year home ec student in high school wins.......well, that shows something is wrong with this program. I will not be wasting my time watching this program again.
