Alexa Chung: '90s were always cool

Alexa Chung

Alexa Chung has joked she "didn't get the memo" that the '90s had gone out of fashion.

The style icon spoke about the revival of 1990s clothing as seen in the opening days of the current London Fashion Week showcases. Dungarees and tie dye are set to be making their fashion comeback for Spring/Summer 13.

"I wasn't aware the '90s went away because I have been wearing dungarees since then," Alexa joked to UK TV Stylist Mark Heyes. "So, I feel bad that I didn't get the memo."

Trendsetter Alexa has been spotted at catwalk shows including Topshop Unique and House of Holland. The British Style Awards winner isn't alone in championing fashion to come from the UK capital.

British acting talent including Bill Nighy and Anna Friel were also seen at showcases on day three of London Fashion Week. Both stars shared their thoughts on the inimitable mix of history and originality already shown in the collections so far.

"We have a great, mixed society here and we create all sorts of unique and wonderful things," Bill told London Fashion Week TV. "This is as good as it gets."

Anna also gushed about how great it is to be British at this point in time. The actress explained why London is so highly regarded in the fashion world time and time again.

"It's got history and at this time we have so much to offer," she explained. "I'm very proud to be here."
