Dom Streater, a Philadelphia-based women's wear designer, was crowned the winner of Lifetime network's Project Runway All Stars Thursday night. Streater - who won Project Runway season 12 back in 2013 - impressed celebrity judges with an eight-look collection inspired by the hustle and bustle of New York city. The dazzling line of sportswear was infused with a few dressy chic touches and included one men's look. Streater, known for her electric prints, made all of the textiles.

After 10 years in the local style scene, Philadelphia Fashion Week founders Kevin Parker and Kerry Scott have more than perfected their presentations. The duo produced four solid days of runway shows and cocktail parties last week at venues throughout the city, starting with a kickoff soiree at SugarHouse Casino, an outdoor fashion show at Geno's Steaks - yes, the South Philly institution - and a menswear show in the Ritz-Carlton. On Thursday and Friday evening, the Crane Arts Building on North American Street was alive with the fall 2015 and spring 2016 runway collections of mostly Philadelphia designers.

Zymir has his heart set on becoming a fashion designer and developing his own brand of "Z" jeans. In fact, he already has made a sketch of them. That's quite ambitious for an 11-year-old, even one as stylish and creative as Zymir. During a recent visit to Philadelphia University's fashion design department, he watched several garments being made and learned the process start to finish. He also got some tips from designer Jay McCarroll, winner of the debut Project Runway competition in 2004.

Even with tousled hair and dots of milk of magnesia priming her face for a chocolate foundation, Raelia Lewis is prettier in person than she is on television. Lewis of North Philadelphia, one of 14 finalists on this season's America's Next Top Model , was getting runway-ready on Wednesday to audition for the spring 2015 New York Fashion Week catwalk. The presentations start Thursday, and when they end next Thursday, more than 100 up-and-coming and established designers will have presented warm-weather trends in and around New York's Lincoln Center.

Project Runway winner Dom Streater will present her fall 2014 womenswear collection - a sophisticated fusion of minimalist silhouettes and rosy graphic prints - at an intimate New York Fashion Week meet-and-greet Thursday. It's a Fashion Week debut for the Philadelphia designer, and she's calling the collection Prima, inspired by the life of Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. "I came across a black-and-white photograph of her with flowers in her hair, and she looked like a flower child in a classic, romantic way," Streater said.

The spread features dresses and suits with big bold prints in warm colors and whites.

PHILLY is not a city known for its fashion. But recently, it has taken concrete steps to get its swag on, beginning with the creation of The Philadelphia Collection, Philly's answer to New York's famed Fashion Week, and then the Macy's incubator for emerging designers. Last week, the City of Brotherly Love got another major style boost after Lifetime's "Project Runway" named a local woman, Dom Streater, as its Season 12 winning designer. A graduate of Moore College of Art & Design, the Overbrook resident plans to launch her new design business right here in Philly.

PHILADELPHIA, we have another "Project Runway" winner. Dom Streater, a 24-year-old graduate of Moore College of Art & Design made it work when it counted, and last night on Lifetime was named the 12th winner of the Emmy-winning fashion-design competition whose last local winner was the show's first, Jay McCarroll. "Scandal" star Kerry Washington was among the judges for the finale, which pitted Streater against three other finalists. She takes home a prize estimated to be worth more than half a million dollars (including at least $150,000 in cash, a 2014 Lexus and, bizarrely, a year's supply of spring water)

* PROJECT RUNWAY. 9 tonight, Lifetime. * REIGN. 9 tonight, CW57. IF DOM Streater wins the 12th edition of "Project Runway" tonight, she'll be the first Philadelphia designer to take the prize - or even make it to the finals - since Jay McCarroll won in 2005. But that's not why I'm rooting for the 24-year-old Moore College of Art & Design grad in a competition that admittedly was decided more than a month ago. If Dom, as "Runway" fans know her, is a source of local pride, it should be because she's been modeling behavior we're not used to seeing on "reality" TV, acting like a grown-up on a show that can't seem to stop casting for conflict, if not actual crazy.
