Lessons For the Wild: Doub Hanshaw
Watch the primary video in our new collection: Lessons for the Wild
We have been seven days into capturing the December 2015 catalog, and documenting it for the primary episode of our new collection, Lessons for the Wild, when it began to click on for me.
I was in the midst of the Sahara desert, the solar burning by means of the layers of sunscreen I’d utilized that morning, watching our catalog crew slowly succumb to the warmth. As scorching because it was, the hearth we’d had for the previous week appeared to be dwindling.
Our artistic director and topic of the movie, Doub Hanshaw, walked throughout one of many dunes – her blonde hair pulled again in a ponytail, rocking a candy classic flight go well with, oozing all types of confidence. She gathered us collectively, reminded us of her imaginative and prescient, and firmly informed us to interrupt and begin getting issues executed. The tone of the group shifted; a number of temporary minutes, and the hearth was again.
As she walked away, I thought: “Wow. I need to be her.”
Which, by the way, was the entire level.
Around the workplace, we had been calling the venture the “Mentors” collection – tales of robust, courageous ladies who’ve seen the wild, unpredictable elements of life, and are available out on the opposite aspect higher for it. Women who push you to be as a lot you, as a lot as they are them.
I needed to know her secret. How did she turn out to be so assured in her concepts? Was she who she seemed to be on the surface? What occurred in her life that formed her into somebody I admired a lot? How did she do it?
We got down to reply these questions in Doub’s story, in addition to the opposite ladies you’ll meet within the coming weeks as we launch our 4-half collection.
When we met up with Doub at her home in Los Angeles to complete the story, it was even clearer to me how her journey might assist information ladies who discovered themselves on a far totally different path than that they had ever deliberate.
Lessons from the wild, for the wild amongst us…
