For those who believe Anna Yinan Zhou didn’t deserve to be eliminated on the 10th ep of Project Runway season 19, we’ve got good news for you. The producers have heard your plea and brought her back for the show’s 20th installment!

Keep reading this Anna Yinan Zhou Bio to learn more.

Anna Yinan Zhou On Project Runway All-Star Season 20

Never before. Project Runway season 20 has bought in the past contestants from over the last 19 seasons, and they are competing in even tougher challenges for an upped cash prize of $250,000.

But while some have had enough time (even up to 19 years) to prepare for the competition, Anna Yinan Zhou had to start filming right after she wrapped up Project Runway season 19. 

“While I am incredibly grateful for the first opportunity that Project Runway gave me, this second chance is truly special,” she said. “It allows me to showcase my skills and creativity to an even wider audience, and to learn from my past experience on the show. I see it as a chance to grow and improve as a designer, and to establish my brand even further.”

Additionally, as a mother who had to leave her family behind for the competition, she confessed that she wanted to set an example for her son about the “value of hard work and pursuing your dreams” — which she confessedly failed to do in the previous season.

However, many fans believed that Anna was a better designer who deserved to stay past ep 10 on Project Runway season 19. They even called out the judges for choosing Kristina Kharlashkina over Anna after they both failed to impress judges with their designs.

“Kristina gotta go with this passive-aggressive attitude and also towards a black woman! Wendy is very civil and professional on this challenge and is not bringing drama,” a fan wrote.

Another added, “Wtf @BravoTV @ProjectRunway just say you hate Asian inspired designs. Judges really said that Kristina failed the challenge yet Anna was eliminated!”

How Much Is Anna Yinan Zhou Net Worth?

Anna flaunted a net worth of above $1 million in 2023.

This Project Runway star has always been drawn to the creativity and artistry of great designers — even before she studied fashion. “I remember seeing Alexander McQueen’s stunning runway shows and feeling like I was witnessing true art in motion,” she recalled. It was the way designers can use fabric, color, and silhouette to create something beautiful and meaningful that always fascinated her.

Thus, as she grew up, she chose fashion as an outlet to explore her own creativity and sense of style. However, it wasn’t until her mid-20s that she decided to pursue fashion as a career. At the time, she had just finished her first degree and was feeling unfulfilled in her field. So, she took a leap of faith, enrolled in a fashion design program at the Academy of Art University, and launched her brand ORAZ @oraz_ny, during the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Obviously, running a business in a pandemic is not an easy thing to do. But a saving grace, Project Runway reached out to her and offered her an incredible opportunity. “I saw it as fate and decided to seize the chance to showcase my skills and creativity on the show,” she said.

The last we checked, Anna featured ORAZ’s couture collection at NYFW — which she considered her biggest success to date. Their collections generally combined artisanal craftsmanship and details with abstract volumes and unique silhouettes to offer a contemporary take on femininity and cost anywhere between $195 to $2800.

Anna’s works have also been featured in publications like Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar Bulgaria.

Her fashion icons are Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood.
