I'm Meghan, owner and operator of Vancouver Fashion Truck (VFT), your women's clothing and accessories shop on wheels!
I'm a girl who thought I loved science and healthcare (former Dental Hygienist) but has since discovered that I am pretty much the opposite (an entrepreneur and fashion lover at heart!) I ended up quitting my career in the dental field and landed a "fun" job at a local women's boutique that would tide me over until I "figured it all out". I quickly moved in to the management position and after about 4 years of managing the shop, I realized that my passion was to run my own store.
I knew the landscape of retail was changing. People were shopping online more than ever. I couldn't just open up a brick & mortar and expect to be successful. If I opened in a good location the rent would put me out of business, and if I opened in a less expensive space the location wouldn't be great and the lack of customers would put me out of business. I didn't even want to explore that any further.
I also knew that people still craved an in-person shopping experience. It just had to be different.
The idea of a pop-up was intriguing, but I wanted to be more than an online store that would pop up a few times a year. I wanted to be more of a "permanent pop up"! After visiting local festivals and fairs I decided to put my business on wheels so I could move around and "pop up" easily.
Vancouver Fashion Truck was born!
Vancouver Fashion Truck is a modern and trendy mobile boutique that combines the boho-chic vibe of California with the practical & casual vibe of Vancouver. The collection focuses on being casual and cute; pieces that you can wear from day to night by just changing your jewelry, lipstick and your shoes. You can find everything from graphic tees and the comfiest denim, to floral blouses, tank dresses, oversized cardigans, and so much more. These are pieces you will be reaching for daily. Don’t forget to shop the ever-changing selection of both minimalistic and bold jewelry, and delicious, locally-made spa products, too!
New arrivals hit the floor every week, so make sure you visit the truck in person and online often! Click here to see where the truck will be next.
A little more about me: I love being creative, shopping, drinking wine, eating cheese with every meal, laughing, learning, going for walks with my bf and our Shiba Inu @denirotheshiba, road trips, taking breathing breaks, soaking in the sun, and travelling to just about anywhere!
