London, United Kingdom, September 20, 2008 --( Following on from the success of previous Premium Brands Boutique collaborations, fashion e-tailer has launched an exclusive capsule collection by designer Nicola De Main.

Nicola de Main launched her own label in July 2004, winning her the prestigious ‘Fashion Futures Young Designer of the Year’ award. Known for her wearable catwalk fashions, Nicola works alongside James Millar (formerly of Jonathan Saunders) to create stunning bold prints which have become a key element of her collections.

Launched on the 8th September 2008, the capsule collection, named “We’re Eclectic and Anything Goes” comprises six dresses which have been designed exclusively for asos.

Inspiration comes from magpie-like fashion where East meets West in a fusion of oriental fabrics, delicate lace overlays and colourful modern prints.

A rich colour palette of hot pinks, navy and gold work with various dress shapes - from the simple but classic 60s shift through to the 80s high glamour cocktail dress - create a collection which is a rich tapestry of styles, entirely individual and ultra wearable.

“Working with ASOS has been really fun. It's really exciting to make a collection that will have a wider appeal. I have also enjoyed seeing how the other end of the fashion world works and applying it to my own label. I am looking forward to see what happens next...” Nicola de Main.
