Asos chief operating officer and chief financial officer Mat Dunn was optimistic about prospects, despite the challenges facing the business and consumers such as inflation and ongoing supply chain disruption.

After a period, he told Retail Week: “In terms of consumers we are absolutely seeing a pick-up in activity levels correlating with the products that people want to shop. 

“We’ve had our biggest ever season on dresses, people want to go out and socialise and there’s definitely pent-up demand there as people haven’t been able to do any of those fun things.”
