Fort Lonesome’s Haus of Shiny Shit is loving homage to the rhinestone cowboys of yester-west - a curated celebration of recent commissioned suits, each shinier than the last.

Before the show, we invited guests and performers to wear their custom Fort Lonesome pieces to act as ‘walking manniquins’ amongst the suits on display - creating a collaborative and living art exhibit. With shiny backdrops, spotlights, discoball and a performance from Grammy-nominated Austin bluegrass band Wood & Wire, Haus of Shiny Shit was the highest-attended Preacher Gallery opening night to date.
