Online shopping hipsters the world over are crying right now after the news one of the world's most popular online clothing stores for hipsters has been shut down due to a fire.

The clothing retailer, that has been free shipping moderately priced uber fab wares to NZ for awhile now, took down their hugely popular website this weekend and posted this message:

"Dear Customers,

We have pressed pause on the ASOS website, this is due to a fire in our Barnsley distribution centre in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Thankfully no one was hurt and we expect to be back to normal for you in the next day or so.

So please hold on to your orders, we will be back with you soon."

Thankfully (as the statement reads), no one was hurt in the blaze, but quite a bit of stock was - 10 MILLION boxes of it in fact! It took 60 firefighters and 10 fire engines from across South Yorkshire to tackle the fire.

ASOS fans reacted with shock and outrage on Twitter at the news their beloved fashion outlet was temporarily down...
