As a follow on from TGFPR Part One, it suddenly occurred to be that I have not said a word about Anya Ayoung-Chee winning Project Runway!
This is slackness because I follow Anya on Twitter, started watching PR because of her (I don’t even like the show), and I eagerly await the day I can wear something uber cute and Anya-designed. Just to be clear, I am not like some people I know who’s Gmail chat statuses were changed to “my friend Anya is the Project Runway winner.” These people shall remain nameless because desperation should never be given an official name.
I first saw Ms. Ayoung-Chee’s work back in San Fernando Fashion Week, which was thoroughly bleh if not for Anya and Meiling’s work. Their work was thought out representations of their core ideas and inspirations. Navaho Indians and Grand Rivere respectively, if I am not mistaken.
So here’s a little Trini pride, and really great talent. Anya presented her collection “Tobago Love” for the finale. Really lovely homage to Tobago, and if you’ve never been, I suggest you visit. Nothing quite like it =)
