With the ever increasing power of the internet, so many things are accessible to us right from the comfort of our homes! With the launch of a new site this month called Moda Operandi, shoppers, just like you and me, will be able to place orders for styles that only 48 hours ago, or less, were on the runway! Dozens of collections from high-end designers will be available like Vera Wang, Giambattista Valli, and more. The site will start off offering 4 women's collections from about 50 designers per year. During the rest of the year, the site will sell jewelry and accessories. The genius behind Moda Operandi is former head of merchandising for Gilt Noir, Aslaug Magnusdottir.
To be able to take advantage of this exclusive shopping experience, you must visit the site at http://www.modaoperandi.com/ and apply for membership. Once you are a member, you can login to the site, shop, and place your order with a 50% deposit. Your clothes will be manufactured and shipped within 4 months. And ladies, don't worry! There is a return policy!
I don't know, realistically, how appealing this site will be to the average fashionista, but to the high-end consumer, it's appeal is obvious! Just think! With your Moda Operandi membership, every week can be Fashion Week, and you'll always have a front row seat!
