Fresh from her win last week, Trinidadian designer, Anya Ayoung-Chee won yet another challenge on Project Runway Season 9, this time raking in a $20,000 prize!

Last night’s challenge was centered around being inspired by birds and our girl surely flew away with the money.

Heidi Klum told the designers they will be creating high fashion looks – inspired by birds! Their muses were an Amazon, Raven and Cockatoo.

The designers are divided into groups of two, however, the twist was that it was a head-to-head challenge – designers in each group competing against one another.
Raven – Anya & Laura
Amazon Parrot – Joshua & Bert
Cockatoo – Viktor & Kimberly

In the end, our girl Anya Ayoung-Chee was the winning designer of the challenge, but also won prizes of appearing in a Marie Claire editorial shoot and a $20,000 cash prize!

Next Week: Inspiration from a wonderful art from Stormking in mid-state New York seems to be the final challenge for the final five. This should be interesting!

Project Runway airs on Lifetime TV on Thursdays at 9PM ET.
