She also hosted a weekly Popworld Radio show. She had therefore hosted many shows such as T4 Movie Specials and T4 Holiday Mornings along with T4’s coverage of many music festivals.
Beside this, she was launching her YouTube channel on August 15, 2018 with 477 thousand subscribers and more than 27.9 million followers.
But after four years as a model, Chung abandoned her career due to low self-esteem and began her path in the world of television .
She got her start with the British show ‘Popworld‘ and in the year 2008 she had a great opportunity to interview numerous designers as a reporter for the show ‘Gok’s Fashion Fix’.
This same year she returned to the world of fashion as the face of the Australian brand Antipodium and a year later she established herself as an it girl walking the runway at London Fashion Week for Vivienne Westwood Red Label .
The top has also appeared in several television commercials promoting products such as Fanta soft drinks or Sony Ericsson mobiles.
With one foot in fashion and the other in television, Alexa Chung wins hearts around the world when she is awarded ‘Best TV Host’ in 2009 by ELLE Style .
Shortly after, MTV offered him the program ‘It’s On with Alexa Chung’, with not much success. After succeeding on television with some programs, the model has returned to the catwalk on several occasions to parade.
In any case, Chung has been considered on numerous occasions as one of the best dressed celebrities on the international scene. Her style is highly praised and, in addition, she has great friends from the world of fashion such as Poppy Delevingne.
She has received the British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards numerous times.Also, in the year 2016 she announced the creation of her own clothing firm and she launches the book ‘IT’ as a biography in which she recounts her successes and failures.
She is also a fan of writing and between 2007 and 2008 she was writing a monthly column for the British women’s magazine Company. She later continued to write a column but changed publications, leaving for The Independent with her ‘Girl About Town’.
But fashion was always her great passion and from her first steps in the ‘star system’ she showed that she had a very personal style that combined the most ‘lady’ and ‘chic’ with loose or men’s garments.
A way of dressing that earned him a good number of followers and that caught the attention of brands due to his great attraction with the public . ‘Front rows’ in parades of luxury brands, exclusive collaborations – she has been a muse for Chanel , magazine covers.
Chung began to rise like foam and become one of the great icons of British fashion of the 21st century .
Until today, when he has more than 3 million followers on Instagram and continues to be the image of different brands. Although the most important is your own.
Because this ‘Dulceida’ with a ‘British’ passport has set up her own clothing business that has nothing to do with the Spanish one, because the one Chung sells under her own brand has prices that make her look like a luxury brand .
Before becoming a businesswoman, Alexa had designed several collections with the British department store Marks and Spencer , for her own clothing company. As expected, these garments swept, which lit the flame of design in the influencer, who had already studied art at Chelsea College of Art and Design in her teens.
Thus, in 2016, ALEXACHUNG , his homonymous firm, was born, something that many other influencers have done in this time –Chiara Ferragni, Dulceida, Lovely Pepa, MyPeepToes.
Although she has distanced herself from the model that these have followed, because her brands today have prices that are considered affordable .
Chung has opted, on the contrary, for a client with greater purchasing power , and her clothes have prices that could well be those of a luxury brand.
Pants for more than 200 euros, dresses that exceed 600, shoes from 100 euros and even coats for more than 1,000 euros .
Chung has entered the luxury industry strongly due to the growth that he is having and the prominence that the ‘millennials’ are acquiring in this segment -they will buy 40% of luxury in 2025-, the main followers of her.
There she rubbed shoulders, dressed as not her brand, with Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss or Meghan Markle , who came by surprise to present the award for best designer of the year to Clare Waight Keller.
At the moment, she has already managed to sneak her clothes into the fashion editorials of the best international headers, which demonstrates the reputation they are acquiring.
Thus, the influencer has already opened a gap among the cream of the British fashion industry , as demonstrated last Monday by attending the ‘British Fashion Awards’ gala , the annual awards of the sector in the United Kingdom.
In this way, Chung is the example that influencer status can be used for much more than just posing on Instagram .
She doesn’t just design clothes; she has also written the book ‘It’, she is a DJ or produces fashion films. A series of things that make her a 360º creator who during these years has been able to reinvent herself and show that she is always one step ahead.
