Aslaug Magnusdottir

CEO and Co-Founder, Moda Operandi.  New York

Aslaug Magnusdottir, who has gone by the title of "Fashion's Fairy Godmother" (a term coined by the team at Vogue) is both the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Moda Operandi, the first online luxury retailer to allow members to pre-order tomorrow's styles today. Magnusdottir has developed quite the impressive reputation for herself in the global fashion community, as she has been dubbed one of the most influential people in British retail by Draper's. But, unlike most, Magnusdottir holds both a strong educational background and keen eye, as recognized in her vast scholarly accomplishments. For starters, she holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, an LLM from Duke University School of Law, and an undergraduate degree in Law from the University of Iceland. Prior to the much-anticipated and highly publicized launch of Moda Operandi, which she founded with Lauren Santo Domingo, Aslaug was VP of Premium Products and Services at Gilt Group, where she headed-up merchandising from the brands top-tiered customers. She was the President of House of Waris Fine Jewelry, and in 2006, she relocated to NYC full time and co-founded TSM Capital, a retail investment company that invests in luxury brands - most notably Rachel Roy and Matthew Williamson. With her strong determination, and highly successful business ventures, The Coveteur went inside her exceptional closet, and found those gems that she has collected over time that help to differentiate her exceptional sense of style from the rest of the fashion set.
