Modern Society was founded by Nazifa Movsoumova in 2013. And though her store is widely regarded as one of the freshest spots in fashion and design, she began her career in law and finance – which definitely isn’t bad for business. Nazifa’s well-curated designer edits and unique vision are what brings Modern Society to life – and what sees visitors heading straight to the store and its café the minute they set foot in Shoreditch.
