It came down to four.

The finalists of Project Runway’s ninth season – Viktor Luna, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson and Anya Ayoung-Chee – had five weeks and $9,000 each to create a collection to be showcased at New York’s Fashion Week.

So, which designer made it in the end? Keep reading to find out:

On Thursday’s season finale, Ayoung-Chee emerged the winner, with a collection of Caribbean-inspired clothing that the judges described as sexy though limited.

Ayoung-Chee said support from host Heidi Klum was “almost 100 percent” responsible for her victory.

In the previous week’s episode, Ayoung-Chee (along with McKinley and Goldson) was told to refine her collection before presenting it at Lincoln Center.

Looks like her changes paid off!
