This week on Project Runway, we watched as Anya Ayoung-Chee took home the $100k prize, despite the fact that her sewing skills were not as advanced as others on the show. After her big win, Anya sat down with People Magazine where she chatted it up about her journey, and as she is enjoying her win she said: “It’s really overwhelming. I came from not expecting to go past the casting because of my sewing skills…it’s just the most unbelievable story, and I’m just along for the ride.”

Anya Ayoung-Chee also dished on her fellow finalist Joshua McKinley, who criticized her sewing skills on the show, but she never took it personally. The Project Runway winner also revealed: “He and I are very good friends, and I think I really get him. Sometimes he says things that he may not mean, for no other reason than that he was hurt himself.”

According to People Magazine, Anya Ayoung-Chee is staying busy setting up a new Internet retail site in time for the holidays and doing some charity work, of which she said: “I will start a microfinance loan with the fan favorite money to support young, creative people in the Caribbean. It’s an unsupported region of commerce, so I’m excited to start that.” Anya Ayoung-Chee also gushed that she is already getting calls from celebrities who want her designs!
