Darlings, I must begin this post with a disclaimer: one of the main goals of Thread Conscious is to report some of the best sales on designer clothing and accessories in DFW and online. Another goal is to expose you to different aspects of the fashion industry, from interviews with independent boutique owners to fashion law. Our motto is “Never Pay Retail, Always Look Fabulous.” However, this is not a command, but more of a mantra, and how you spend your scratch is up to you. That being said, this post is about how to get looks straight off the runway to your doorway: Introducing Moda Operandi.
Moda Operandi is an online, members-only shopping experience for the fashion-obsessed (i.e. folks with disposable income), set to launch in February 2011. For those who hate to wait, you’ll be able to order looks straight from the runway from Vera Wang, Thakoon and other major fashion labels. Founder, and former Gilt Noir employee, Ms. Aslaug Magnusdottir has collaborated with Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo to give “women the power to choose from the full collection.” No need to wait 6 months from the fashion show only to be disappointed by the abbreviated collection that finally makes it to retail stores. Include a 50% deposit with your order, and secure your fashion fix now. Read more about Moda Operandi here.
