Moda Operandi, the online luxury retailer that allows members to pre-order fresh runway ensembles much before they actually hit the stores, has now gone a step ahead to make sure that their customers can avail those stunning designs just a few hours after the red carpet events.
The retailer, who is sponsoring New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Ball or Met Gala 2013, is prepping up to sell some spectacular ball gowns, worn by the celebrities, on May 7, 2013, right after the gala night that is to take place on May 6, 2013.
More than ten dresses designed by the likes of Balmain, Anthony Vacarello, Delpozo, Rodarte, Nina Ricci and Wes Gordon will be up for sale on the e-commerce site which will also live stream the annual ball event celebrating the annual opening of the fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute.
Additionally, the retailer is also going to host an exhibition titled ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’, featuring nearly 100 pieces created by twelve leading designers, including Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Eddie Borgo, Ek Thongprasert, Givenchy, House of Waris, Moschino, Prabal Gurung, Preen, Rodarte, Thom Browne and Vivienne Westwood at the Costume Institute from May 9, 2013 onwards.
Moda Operandi specializes in an expertly curated selection of in-season trends from both established and emerging designers worldwide.
Hosted annually by Vogue, Met Gala is considered to be the fashion world's best red carpet event which sees a range of A-list celebrities dressed in fineries designed by the world’s best fashion designers.
