Asos Marketplace

Asos Marketplace has finally arrived.
Actually it has been up a short while now
I kind of forgot about it... Oops!
Imagine a taking a bit of Ebay (selling items over the internet)
thrown together with a bit of Etsy (handmade products from designers)
and you have Asos Marketplace.

What I like about this site is that anybody can set up a profile and sell unwanted clothing,
and in doing so allows users to upload photos of themselves wearing
the garments they are trying to sell. The difference
between Asos Market place and ebay is that everybody looks fashionable
and I think this makes a great selling point.
Not only that but the site itself is sleek and stylish.

So lets push aside the unwanted old items and possible unwanted gifts
and get to the really interesting part and also my favourite.
Added to all of the above are boutiques and up and coming
designers that can use Asos Marketplace to sell their work.

All in all, it is an exciting concept, and with Asos being a top online retailer
it is not only a good way of promoting new talent but
also to get a completely unique design.

One surprise I had when having a browsing through the products was the lingerie
section. I didn't expect to see much, If anything but there were some
really unique and interesting pieces.

My favourite pieces were from designer Mark Fast and Electric Ibiza (which
until today I had never come across)
Below are the pieces which caught my eye...
