Philly Takes the Win
Dom Streaver is the first Philadelphian to win Project Runway in eight years and is the only African American to win. Dom worked at the Philadelphia Zoo in high school and college where she attended Moore College of Art and Design, where she was an expert in textiles. At first, she wanted to be a marine biologist, but something about fashion had a hold on her. Dom worked in animal care at the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine, but she also set up a website and sold some items.
Now after winning Project Runway, she has big plans. She won $150,000 in cash to launch her collection and a 2014 Lexus IS 350. At a New York Fashion Week presentation, Dom showed her garments made from prints drawn by hand, scanned into a computer, and Photoshop. She’s designing a dress for Samuel Jackson’s wife, LaTanya Richardson. Dom went to a photoshoot on Monday for Marie Clare and will go back for the Season 3 premiere of Project Runway All Stars. Dom Streater’s success continues as she travels and shows off her designs, and she is one to be watched!
