When the word “Fashion,” is mentioned one cannot resist but only think of the glam’ and glitz, bright lights, celebs, camera flashes and renowned international cities such as Paris, London, and Milan. It was not until 2011 where Fashion Designer Anya Ayoung-Chee, a former Ms. Universe Contestant, brought the heritage of the turquoise ocean, laced with the pattern of rhythmic Soca percussions, to what will be recognized as a bench mark in main stream fashion media for her country.
Anya, a native of two Caribbean islands, know as Trinidad and Tobago, appeared on Season Nine of Lifetime Network’s Project Runway, a reality TV competition in which aspiring designers create fashion pieces which are then judged by a panel of iconic fashion industry professionals, which she competed and won the title of that season.
Anya is a beautiful woman with stylish glam rock hair, high blushed cheek bones, and a delicate feminine appeal, who adorns herself with bright colors and bold patterns, reflective of her culture’s celebratory Carnival. She is the epitome of beauty and inexhaustible grace, which her name “Anya,” means in Sanskrit and other Eastern languages.
United Colors Of Fashion, a New York based Fashion Non-For Profit Organization, which creates International High Fashion runway shows and benefits for those in need, is pleased to have Anya present her collection in their 2012 “Be Glamorous: Glamour Gives” Gala. “I believe Anya will capture the essence of the Caribbean in her presenting collection, stylish, bright, sensual and free,” states Michael A. Narian, UCOF’s Media Marketing Manager. “I was captured by her beauty but fell in love with her when I realized that she was a fellow West Indian, I told my colleagues we must have her present. To have my people represented at an event which brings the world’s best is an honor, and the way that she incorporates aesthetics and functionality is dynamic,” continues Mr. Narain. “After researching Anya, I saw that she too has a spirit of philanthropy and has been adamant since 2003, working with underprivileged youths, a dichotomy of Fashion-Humanitarianism, an ideal fit for representing the mission of United Colors of Fashion,” Mr. Narain concludes.
