Meet Lorelei Shellist
Designer, Author, Speaker, image consultant and inner beauty empowerment coach Lorelei Shellist and founder of Fashion Icon Archetypes™ programs, brings new meaning to the definition of “supermodel.”
Having been a graceful and spirited muse for Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Bob Mackie, Geoffrey Beene, Giorgio Armani and more, Lorelei received first-hand experience on how to bring art and dreams to life from many of the world’s greatest designers.
In her memoir, “Runway Runaway: A Backstage Pass to Fashion, Romance & Rock ‘n Roll,” Lorelei inspires with her perseverance, determination, survival skills, and wit, on how she went from a runaway teen to a world class international model and muse to the Grand Masters of Fashion and Music.
Beyond the runway, Lorelei has appeared internationally in films, TV, commercials, and print, and has gone on the road as a singer/songwriter. She holds degrees from the Masters programs in Spiritual Psychology and Consciousness, Health, and Healing from the University of Santa Monica, and is a graduate of Alison Armstrong’s “PAX Programs: Peace Between Men and Women.” In addition, she is a facilitating counselor with the Freedom to Choose Foundation 501(c)(3), working with inmates at Valley State Prison for Women. Her own non-profit organization, I AM Dreams with Wings, teaches critical life skills to at-risk teens. Lorelei also offers two scholarships at Mesa College in San Diego. The “Shellist Music Scholarship” which provides a full tuition for vocational students of music, and the Runway Runaway Fashion Design scholarship for up and coming fashion designers.
