Anya Ayoung Chee at Project Runway

Trinidad and Tobago beauty queen turned designer, Anya Ayoung Chee, who has her own fashion line called Pilar, will be competing in the 9th Season of Project Runway. Project Runway will be broadcast (Lifetime) on Thursday, July 28, 2011.

Au Courant Daily writes that the former Miss Trinidad and Tobago/Universe 2008, “really has a fighting chance,” adding that “her aesthetic with the fledgling label Pilar is quite individualistic, and she has developed a very identifiable design lexicon around simple shapes and bold, ethnic patterns. The young protege of Meiling—a legendary Trinidadian designer—Ayoung Chee has continuously illustrated her unique sense of personal style and appreciation for well-made womenswear through Pilar (especially the debut collection) and through her foray into lingerie, Anya de Rogue.”
