It-Brit Alexa Chung To “Thrift America”

Nov 30, 2010 By Vaneza

Alexa Chung is definitely the “It-Brit” of the moment. In the last year or so, Chung has made quite the name for herself in the fashion industry. At just the age of 27, she has a resume that some would kill for just half of. Mulberry named a bag after her which produced a massive waiting list, Mr. Karl Lagerfeld himself made her one of his Chanel muses, she modeled alongside Jon Kortajarena (um, jealous!) for Pepe Jeans, and even collaborated with the brand Madewell with certain pieces sold out almost immediately. To cut to the point, this girl has got it going on!

And now her resume will become even more impressive. Chung, most notably known in the states for her MTV show “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” is now giving the silver screen a second shot with new show “Thrift America” which will air on PBS next summer. According to Elle.com, the show will follow Miss Chung on her various treasure hunts throughout vintage shops and flea markets in New York and other cities such as Orlando, Detroit, Nashville. Known for her amazing ability to mix vintage with couture, I am very excited to see this chic Brit explore America’s thrifty locations. I also think it’ll be a great transition network wise from MTV to PBS. Anyone who is a fan of “Antiques Roadshow” and fashion should be just as excited as I am!
