About Us


Way back in 1960 John Preen started Miss Timaru, he built up an iconic women's fashion destination, well known throughout NZ.

His son, Tony Preen, a trained accountant with a flair for fashion took over the business about 30 years ago. Tony grew the business creating Paddingtons in Oamaru and Timaru, now Preen.

The third generation, Sophie Preen has moved back to Timaru to take over the reins. Sophie has been back for over two years, after working in Melbourne for 8 years doing retail design & project management. Sophie loves fashion and dressing others. Check out her blog here and her Instagram.

Preen's main focus is customer service, giving honest advice and providing on trend, quality, contemporary designs from a range of wonderful labels from NZ & Australia.

Preen online combines both shops, Miss Timaru and Preen. Giving you a large choice with over 30 labels from NZ and Australia in all price ranges. Sizes range generally from 8 - 18, or S to XXL. Preen knows online shopping can be tough, so they offer refunds on any purchases made online. See the full Return policy here.

Some of their favourite labels are Vigorella, Threadz, Foil, Preen, Betty Basics, David Pond, Verge, Stussy, Random, Scope, Sass, Loobies Story, Veronika Maine plus many more.
