It's no surprise that at Moda Operandi — the only e-commerce site where you can pre-order designer looks months before they hit stores — office employees define the art of chic dressing. From its inception in 2010, the Lauren Santo Domingo and Taylor Tomasi Hill-helmed company has blossomed into a veritable force in luxury shopping, giving clients the chance to shop hot-off-the-runway (literally) looks from the comfort of a desk chair.
To be an M'O girl (employee or shopper) means to be forward-thinking, anticipating style trends before magazines call them, and curating a closet from the same covetable selection as celeb and editor alike. And, in this exclusive inside look inside the dot-com's headquarters, one thing is clear: The behind-the-scenes ensembles are as chic as the merchandised trunk shows you can shop right.now. (That is, if you've got the dough to drop on the goods.) For the rest of us, click through to meet the team behind one of the world's most exclusive sites.
