CRUSH: Dom Streater Winner, Project Runway 12

Leave a comment

Dom 6If you couldn’t have guessed I am a Project Runway fanatic. I have watched every season of the show since the 2nd Season and quickly went back and watched the 1st season as soon as it was repeated on Bravo before moving to Lifetime.

Every year Tim Gunn, my favorite warm and fuzzy Mentor and Super Mogul Super Model Host and show creator Heidi Klum discuss how this batch of designers is the most talented group yet to compete for the ultimate in prizes in this clothing design competition show. I couldn’t agree more.  It was also full of amazing designers who seemed to have really bonded and didn’t “play the game,” but actually just made beautiful design!

Dom Streater is the first Black person to win Project Runway Season 12. I couldn’t be happier for her. Her designs were the most consistently fresh and creative, her background of textile design informs stunning print mixing and her clothes are simply lust worthy. I feel like she is Donna Karan meets Diane Von Furstenberg with a severely FRESH twist. Her final collection for me, was perfection.

Her work during the competition was consistent creative and overall extraordinary.

I could go on, and on, and on, but aside from her perfect portfolio from the show, she is the kindest and most humble designer who has ever won Project Runway, and for me that counts for everything. Her Finale collection was one of my favorite finale shows ever. Retrofuturism was the theme and the fact that she was inspired to design based on a movie night watching Blade Runner is just too much happiness. Cheers to Dom! The next big thing. My heart salutes you!
