Appearance at GCC by winner of Project Runway a big hit with GCC fashion students

posted by Howard B. Owens in GCC.

GCC's fashion students were thrilled today to meet Anya Ayoung-Chee, winner of Project Runway Season 9.

So excited, many of them shared their eagerness on Twitter while waiting for the Project Runway Season 9 winner to arrive on campus.

Malgosia Blaszczak: "Oh today is gonna be a blast! Anya Ayoung-chee is in @sunygcc can't wait to meet her!"

Kate Buduson: "So excited to meet @AnyadeRogue she's such an inspiration to all the fashion students here at @sunygcc !"

Ayoung-Chee, who represented Trinidad and Tobago in the Miss Universe pageant, shared the experiences she went through before entering Project Runway that helped her win on the reality series.

GCC has a highly regarded fashion business program that includes study options in fashion merchandising management, fashion design, event planning, and e-commerce.

"Our solid reputation helps us attract people like Anya to talk to our students," said Professor Rick Dudkowski. "We're very excited to have her here, and we know our students will be inspired by her."

UPDATE: Jackie Vetrano created a Storify page covering Ayoung-Chee appearance at GCC.

I think they seem like they are listening intently because they are serious about their career pursuit. The thrill was the anticipation. Now they want to glean all they can from this talented lady.

Good one, Doug!

MP's humor was top-notch. I would be hard-pressed (maybe unable) to pick their best skit. "Happy Valley" comes to mind, where the commentator was talking about the princess and said, "One day when she was pulling Herman 'round the lawn ..."

Ah, sick humor. Where would we be without it?

Did you see her earring? Almost the size of her head. Not "picking", but oh my... Doug is focused below the waist, I was observing above the neck. ("w.w...n.n.")
