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.
