You have seen the collection, now here is a glimpse at Alexa Chung starring in the campaign for her own debut collection for Madewell. Speaking to Refinery29, Alexa revealed that she did, in fact, sketch designs for the range.

"I was on vacation in Turks and Caicos and it rained all week, so I did lots of sketches. My dad and my sister are both graphic designers, so drawing is part of the family trade," she said. As for her favourite piece of the collection, "I really like the black sheer shirt with polka dots... I love how graphic it is, and it's such an easy piece to throw on with jeans."

It's hard to believe that September is just around the corner. So what are Alexa's top three essentials to get her through the big four fashion weeks?

"A camera. I know everyone is digital but I still love film and disposable cameras. A good umbrella because it always pisses it down during Fashion Week in New York. No stupid shoes! I'll definitely be wearing lots of flats."
