Moda Operandi founder Aslaug Magnúsdóttir launches sustainable made-to-wear brand, Katla

Aslaug Magnúsdóttir, the co-founder and former CEO of luxury fashion
e-tailer Moda Operandi, is returning to the fashion world with the launch
of her new made-to-order, sustainable fashion brand, Katla.

The brand is said to “inject a high-fashion aesthetic into ethically
sourced and produced apparel” and comprises dresses, skirts, tops and
pants, with prices ranging from 90 to 900 dollars. Its debut collection
features items crafted from organic cotton, regenerated cellulose fabrics,
cruelty-free wool and recycled synthetics.

‘We are excited to help women be beautiful and responsible at once’

The sustainable-focused brand said it will not be working with leathers,
furs or silks, and has eliminated traditional seasonal collections, instead
releasing pieces on an ongoing basis. To ensure transparency, each item
has its own unique code which customers can use to verify how much it impacts
the environment, from how it is manufactured to how it is delivered to the consumer.

“Many women consider sustainability to be important when shopping for
clothing and yet fashionable options are limited,” said Magnúsdóttir in a
statement. “Katla garments are beautiful and good to people, animals and
the planet.”

Garments will be manufactured in the US via made-to-order to combat one
of the industry’s biggest issues: overproduction and waste. Additionally,
the brand said it has partnered with “innovative and mindful” manufacturers
across the US “that are pioneers in innovative production, prioritizing
sustainable practices and positive working conditions.”

Magnúsdóttir said: “The impact of fashion on the environment is increasingly
understood to be a big problem. Katla wants to be part of the solution. We
believe clothing can be fashionable and environmentally-friendly. We are
excited to help women be beautiful and responsible at once.”
