Homage to The Modern Miss

The Modern Miss has graced the streets of Dunedin with its elegant presence for the past decade, initially on High Street but for the past seven years on Moray Place. Alas, all good things come to an end and the doors have closed for the final time. We’ve spent many happy hours there foraging for treasures and usually there was something we were unable to resist.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. We’re sure that Violet Faigan, owner, has something new up her sleeve and we can’t wait to find out what it will be. So, in Violet’s own words, “watch this space”.

With 18°C temperatures in Dunedin today, we headed outside to take photos for our own personal homage to The Modern Miss.
