Alexa Chung scared of starting own fashion label

Alexa Chung is scared of starting her own fashion label.

The 31-year-old model has revealed she's going to start designing her own line of clothes, and - although a date is yet to be set for its release - she has admitted she's nervous about the prospect.

She said: "Yeah, I'm going to (start my own fashion label). It seems scary. But everything else has been scary, in hindsight. It's just that I didn't have time to think about it. I need to revisit that attitude and get on with it.

"Everything doesn't have to be perfect, I've realised. You can learn as you go."

The British TV presenter - who has already designed two lines for AG Jeans - creates clothes to reflect her own tastes and added she always keeps the unpredictable UK weather in mind.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper's Stella magazine about her new US girl-gang-inspired line for the denim brand, Alexa said: "I wanted all those things myself, but lots of people said, 'Can't you do something that I can wear?' Like, 'Oh, for God's sake, grow up, Alexa.' I really wanted this skirt [A-line in a 1970s style] and little blouses. I do like a blouse.

"I just can't help myself. Even if I'm in California trying to do a girl-gang collection, I want to make things that are weather appropriate [for the UK]. I can't throw caution to the wind without putting a cagoule on."
