The British style icon will act as the Creative Director for Alexachung, set to debut in May 2017, as widely reported in the British media.

The contemporary ready-to-wear line will go on sale initially at department stores including Selfridges, Galeries Lafayette and Matchesfashion.com, as well as via its own online retail site.

The multitalented Chung, a fashion model, muse, designer and journalist, is in a strong position to launch her brand, having previously collaborated on capsule collections for Nails Inc. and AG Jeans. One of her biggest design projects, "Archive by Alexa" for Marks & Spencer, a 31-piece womenswear collection that revived archive pieces from the British retail chain's history, was unveiled in April this year. The Vogue contributor's modeling collaborations with high-end brands such as Longchamp and Tommy Hilfiger are sure to stand her in good stead when it comes to creating her debut line.

Chung will lead a team of six people at the label, and will focus launch efforts on London, New York, Paris and Hong Kong.
