Fashion Fridays: Very Hush Hush.

Very Hush Hush is a small gallery run out of a restored 1964 Airstream Trailer in Nelson, British Columbia. They feature craft, art and design by independent designers. Hush Hush is getting all polished up for a second season opening on the May long holiday weekend. If you know me at all, you know I've been dying for one of these Airstream beauties - I could take sfgirlbybay on the road! The girls from Very Hush Hush found their trailer in pretty rough shape and had it all retro-fitted into a retail space. What fun! Here's a little peek at their beautiful trailer and some of the designers they represent.


Co-founded by Cathy Terepocki and Tracy Fillion, Very Hush Hush is a logical extension of their own labels ( Horn of Plenty and Dear Pony, respectively). While both have been selling work in stores throughout Canada, opening up a retail space of their own seemed like a reasonable next step. What started as an unconventional idea has snowballed into a distinctive collection of clothing, jewelery, ceramics and other accessories by more than a dozen artists.

These ladies of the "Great White North" are smokin' hot! What a GREAT idea! And I am SO with you, V., as I would die to have a souped up Airstream :)

(Since they're sort of in "my neck of the woods" I gotta get me up to Nelson!)

Awesome!

How's this for weird:

Last summer I dreamt I was back in Austin shopping and happened upon a cluster of designers and artists selling their wares out of these trailers - just like Very Hush Hush! I remember thinking "What a great idea - how eco-cool and chic!"

I am NOT making this up!

Bravo!
