We talk a lot about play, and how the real magic in our work happens when we aren’t taking ourselves seriously.
It’s the moments you forget you’re trying that end up being the most captivating.
Described as a Renegade Trade Show, this yearly gathering of brands + industry folk is held outside the Mojave Sands Motel in Joshua Tree and feels more like community building than a product show.
At first glance, it may look like the head-to-toe denim, leather goods, bandana wearing mecca of today, but it’s a lot more than that. There are daily workshops, art galleries, and campfire concerts that run till late each night. The special part of this entire experience is the connections you make and the countless semi-drunk conversations that leave you feeling inspired. You walk away with a larger network of friends interested in helping each other, because let’s be honest – nobody is in this work for the money. #initforthepassion
Society has taught us (women) a widely accepted story of scarcity. We learn to compete with each other, we see the goal, and we go for it as individuals – “may the best (wo)man win”, right?
As women and friends, we’ve chosen to face this story head on. It would seem logical for us, as creatives with similar skill sets, to go our own way, but more recently (now than ever) we are discovering the power of collaborating. We are falling in love with a new story, one that teaches the acceptance of femininity and team work.
