The label taps CSM talent for a new capsule line.

A CSM graduate, ex-Alexander Wang intern and now ASOS Black collaborator (she also did a stint at Marc Jacobs), Amie Victoria Robertson’s CV is probably better than yours.

Joining a club that already calls Molly Goddard one of its own – the ecomm heavyweight tapped her way ahead of NEWGEN – Robertson’s five look line-up is a contemporary affair of evening appropriate pieces, featuring skirts, dresses and sandals all in.

Says ASOS Design Director Vanessa Spence of her appointment, “Her collection demonstrated a true understanding of the craft; we knew it would translate brilliantly to ASOS Black, with its clean, modern, going-out aesthetic.”

“As a design team,” she continues, “we scout for new talent at every GFW, and Amie stood out as an amazing talent at the CSM show.”

Subconsciously riffing on Raf for Dior (there was another internship at Christian Dior Couture, FYI), Robertson’s pieces, borrowing from her standout 2014 graduate collection of loose black turtle necks and heavy applique, offer a slick approach to a more traditional technique; they play up an idea of femininity that rejects prescribed notions of ‘girly', and drop at the end of the month (29th October's the date for you diaries).

“I’m thrilled with the results,” confirms the Middleton native.
