British model-slash-television presenter Alexa Chung is the cover star of Numero Tokyo for October 2012, confirming in the accompanying interview that she is about to turn her hand to fashion design.
Wearing a white embroidered dress in an English country garden setting, the cover is part of a quintessentially British photo series, which continues with Chung wearing a clashing trouser suit on board a London bus. But the real story starts inside the issue, where the 28-year-old speaks about her plans for an eponymous line.
“Yes, I’m definitely going to do that. I’m looking into it right now. I’ve got nothing to lose, it’s a bit of fun,” she said. “In this current era of celebrity no one believes you actually design the stuff anyway, even though I sketch everything myself. So if it sucks I can say I had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good I can say ‘Here are the drawings, it’s all my own work!'”
