About Us


Launched in May 2017, the London based advanced-contemporary womenswear brand ALEXACHUNG is the brainchild of Alexa Chung, the human, born in Hampshire, 1983. With nearly a decade's experience in designing clothes, curating capsules and being a front-woman for other brands, Alexa's idea of starting her own label has been warmly incubating in her mind for some time. 


ALEXACHUNG draws from and expands upon a much-lauded idiosyncratic sense of style, and extensive design, and creative direction projects. The model, muse and journalist distils over a decade of experience in the fashion industry, whilst navigating new territory to deliver a concise and curated collection packed with personality, humour and an innate understanding of the Zeitgeist. 


ALEXACHUNG presents two main collections, and multiple small capsule collections per year and is distributed through www.alexachung.com and sold in 30 countries.
