Dom Streater

*She had the coolest name of the final four contestants and one that perfectly sums up her domination of “Project Runway” this season.

Dom had dazzled the judges all season with her original prints, which she celebrated in her final “Retro Redux” runway show during New York’s Fashion Week.

Kerry Washington – a guest judge on the finale, joining regulars Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen – told Dom she was honored to be a part of the designer’s journey and looks forward to her future collections.
