Remember Anya Ayoung Chee from Project Runway Season 9? You know, the Trinidad native that had only four months of sewing experience prior to entering the competition, yet came out on top as the winner? Well since the season ended last year she has been hard at work doing what she does best and conjuring up quite a bit of buzz around her new Spring/Summer collection.
Making her rounds at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week events across the globe Anya showed her “Carnival of Color” SS ’13 collection in both New York City and Cape Town. Filled with bold prints, vibrant colors, and flowy fabrics the line was much like the mix of clean and whimsical pieces we all grew fond of during her season of Project Runway. And with a self described “sexy, easy, and island” aesthetic, we expected nothing less from the 29 year-old former beauty queen. Not to mention the collection featured a number of wearable looks that any woman would love to own– particularly the v-neck romper and cobalt blue blazer. She can send those over to us, actually.
