Pay attention to the man behind the curtain. For anyone who can't get enough of Project Runway - or who just finds the whole weird world of fashion fascinating - Eleven Minutes offers a glimpse into the low moments and high anxieties of a young, struggling designer, debuting his inaugural line at New York Fashion Week. Jay McCarroll, winner of the first season of Project Runway, is the subject of Michael Selditch and Rob Tate's illuminating doc, which premiered here last spring at the Philadelphia Film Festival.

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)

In a surprising turn, there were four Project Runway finalists, not the expected three as in past seasons. At the end of the Bravo network's episode last night, model Heidi Klum declared designers Michael Knight, Jeffrey Sebalia, Uli Herzner and Laura Bennett as finalists. That means all the collections shown during New York's Fashion Week two weeks ago will be part of the Runway finale. At least as of now. Whew. It looked as if it was going to be tough for crowd favorite Knight, who clearly bombed this week's challenge - making an outfit representing him as a designer.

Dom Streater has worked hard since her dynamic Season 12 Project Runway win almost three years ago. She's built an online-only women's wear brand that caters to women older than 40 who dig a funky print jumpsuit, dress, or - this summer's breakout must-have piece - caftan. Still, the 27-year-old Philadelphia designer views her triumphant finish last month on Project Runway All Stars as a perfectly timed and much-needed infusion of new resources and energy. Streater's second go-round with Lifetime's reality fashion TV franchise earned her $100,000, a future studio, and the chance to design shoes for Chinese Laundry.

* PROJECT RUNWAY. 9 p.m. today, Lifetime. * CEDAR COVE. 8 p.m. Saturday, Hallmark Channel. THE TRASH-TALKING, as usual, begins early. "I like to describe myself as a force to be reckoned with," says one "Project Runway" contestant, as the Lifetime design competition returns for its 12th season tonight. "I am definitely going to rub people the wrong way," says another. "Sorry, bitches. " TV "reality" contests are as stylized as Kabuki theater, and aggressive posturing is part of the formula, since letting one's work speak for itself takes too long.

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.

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.
