“Fashion is not for the faint-hearted,” warns Alexa Chung in her Vogue Visionaries class, in which the TV presenter turned designer shares everything she’s learnt about switching up careers, and launching her own label, Alexachung, in 2017.

Chung’s is the second of eight classes from British Vogue and YouTube’s new Vogue Visionaries series, which sees experts from the worlds of acting, beauty, music and more – from Naomi Scott and Sam McKnight to Celeste and Patricia Bright – impart their words of wisdom and advice on how to succeed in their chosen field.

When it comes to forging a strong aesthetic identity, it’s crucial to start with the piece that epitomises your vision. For Chung, that was a trench coat “because it represents what I wanted to achieve, which was a brand that was classic, had heritage, and was a fresh take on something old.” That core garment will be different for everyone, although she does suggest it’s not denim – “It’s chronically hard to get right.”

As someone who has built a career and brand on her personal style, Chung reveals she initially didn’t have herself in mind when designing. Now, though, she “embraces the idea that if I don’t like it and I wouldn’t personally wear it then it won’t make the cut. It’s actually really simplified things. Even though it sounds narcissistic, the muse is me.”

Honesty about “catastrophes” is important, as is realising there isn’t only one way to do things. “I’m really proud of the clothes I make,” Alexa says. “It may not be the classic way of doing it, but rather than seeing that as a hindrance or becoming insecure about it, I see it as a strength.”

i LOVE her! Everything she says is somehow so inspiring. I feel like she really share her thoughts, not just says things to look cool or something. Thank you, Alexa and thank you, Vogue <3

Ah love her sm! I spent so much time trying to sort of force myself to be "girly" because I thought I needed to be but she just makes me feel more comfortable being me because she's so positive and just beautiful. If Alexa Chung just happened to read this, hello!! Absolute cool girl queen

Her clothes are very cool. Also I feel like only her and Olivia Palermo are the only style people who haven't been influenced by insta fashion, which is refreshing.

Loved it! Thanks for doing this series!!! Have to agree with the point she said about trying. If you don't try you’ll never know. If you do try you might be suprised what you can actually achieve <3

no offense but, when rich people try to reflect on their vitamin B and give normal people advice... it sounds more ridiculous than a 4th grader trying to find a cure for cancer.
