Anya Ayoung-Chee Project Runway finale swimsuit

Swimsuit designed by Anya Ayoung-Chee for the PRoject Runway Season 9 finale

Designer Anya Ayoung-Chee was the only one of the nine Project Runway designers showing during 2011 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week who made a swimsuit. The one-piece with accompanying flowing gown was part of her Caribbean-themed collection that was one of only a very few that received consistent praise from critics in attendance, leading many to believe she may be one of the three actual finalists.
