Based on my memoir “Runway Runaway,” this is the true story of a courageous runaway teenage girl with the tenacity to follow her dreams, travel the globe, and persevere as a model for the grand masters of style. As life cast challenges in her way she carries on- never knowing where her dreams will take her.

A true artist and aesthete, Eric Adler Bornhop had a dream and a vision.
While living in Spain, Eric was inspired by stylish street culture to create his own clothing line. In July, 2012, Eric first walked in the door of legendary designer, MANUEL, as an intern.  Manuel taught Adler the art of tailoring and encouraged him to explore his own personal style. Eric brought his menswear brand, ERIC ADLER, to life in 2014 when it made its debut at

NASHVILLE FASHION WEEK.  This year Eric was the winner of the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund Award.  Recently Eric has opened his own studio in Nashville where he designs and tailors for notable clients such as Alan Jackson, Big Kenny, Shania Twain and more.

Hi, I am so excited to share it with all of you that we have finally arrived at the weekend that we worked so hard to get to.

I am here with many of our cast and crew, and a few of the Angel donors like you, at La Jolla International film Festival 2016! We have completed the tasks it took to arrive at our dream. There are still bills coming in for post production, so if you see any perk awards you like believe me, every little bit helps!

In the meantime I am so grateful for all of your help and support. Keep following along as we post "Go live" moments on Facebook all through the weekend.

Blessings to all

Happy Sunday Angels..
.I am sending you this last update to let you know once more how wonderful you have all been in helping bring the dream of making Skin on Skin A Fashion Film to fruition. We are set with four nominations to world premiere - as planned- at the La Jolla fashion Film Festival. After that we will screen at the Fashion Film Festivals in Paris, Berlin, Milan and who knows where else! It has been quite a learning opportunity and I feel very blessed to have gotten to know all of oyu who have been apart of the ride.

As you go on in your own lives and you follow your dreams - please know that you are forever in my heart and we will always be connected. I have you in my prayers as we are the dream team. Together we support ourselves and each other in the energy field of dreams.

The fund will end on June 30th. If any of these perks look interesting to you -please collect them now.

Remember this quote from my Professor Dr. Mary Hulnick from the University of Santa Monica: "Dreams are wishes your own heart makes!"


"if wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets!" by sci-fi author Frank Herbert

Light to all your dreams!
Love ,

The final stretch.
One of the most important things I have learned in the masters' program in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica is this concept...To be "fully engaged in something - but not attached to the outcome."

This rule of thumb helps us let go of our expectations of what we think things should look like and allows for the universe to co-create with us. Why? When we are attached to the outcome - we are then disappointed if things don't turn out the way we planned. In my experience - when I do that - the universe ALWAYS has a better plan than I could have dreamt of.

Well, that is truly the case here.
The final edit of Skin on Skin did not exactly follow the original synopsis (the Holly-go-lightly version of my book Runway RunAway.) While I would have liked to have seen the original idea come to life, unforeseen changes took place, and the film revealed itself - morphed into something different than what had been intended. It was a stretch for me to share more of my personal life challenges on the silver screen for all to see. But it turns out that is what it was calling for.

The result is Skin on Skin has been submitted to the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival and I am grateful and excited to share that it has received four nominations!!!

While the funds you shared were all spent wisely, I am still paying down the credit card as our tight budget ran up to more than 25 K. I feel it was worth it for this story wanted to be told as an inspiration for people to stay true to their dreams - no matter what.

The perk awards are available until the end of June if you feel like making a final contribution.

I want to thank all of you ANGELS who believed in this dream and stayed true to your own dreams too.

It has been a wild, nail biting, fantastic ride.

Love, Lorelei
