Project Runway Junior's First-Ever Winner Is…
Project Runway: Junior has its first ever winner!
Congratulations to 14 year-old Maya, who also happened to be the youngest designer who competed this season!
Her collection, which was inspired by “a female warrior in a field of flowers” managed to wow both the judges and us, even after all those years of watching Project Runway have made us total fashion experts. (LOL)
We were a little dubious of a kid version of our favorite reality competition, but that turned out to be a whole lot of fun. The kids were just as talented as the adults often are, and also turned out to be a lot less mean to each other.
All the teens, whose ages ranged from 14 to 17, managed to create some stunning works of art we couldn’t even dream of coming up with, but we aren’t jealous. Not even a little bit. We’re totally comfortable in our basic ability to sew buttons and hem pants. It’s fine.

After a spectacular runway show, 16 year-old Samantha was named runner-up, while 15 year-old Peytie took third place and 16 year-old Zachary landed in fourth place.
Host Hannah Davis, judges Christian Siriano, Kelly Osbourne, and Aya Kanai, and guest judge Bella Thorne praised Maya’s detailing and even referred to her as a “genius” before naming her the winner.
They, like us, were particularly partial to a certain pair of flowy cage pants, which we would like to buy right this second.
Did the right teen take home the title? Sound off in the comments!
