After getting the ax from MTV last month, Alexa Chung is determined to prove that her talents extend beyond the ability to interview pop stars by launching a career in fashion design.

The former host of It''s On…with Alexa Chung has announced she will partner with Madewell to create a clothing collection for the company''s fall 2010 line, USA Today reports.

A recent addition to the J.Crew Group, Madewell asked the model and television presenter to be the creative muse for and face of their new autumn collection, which will be sold online and in stores across the U.S.

Chung, who also recently signed a contract to become the face of Pepe Jeans, is known for her laid-back and tomboyish style, according to InStyle.

Consequently, the media outlet expects the new collection will feature oversized wool jackets, velvet and polka-dot dresses as well as high-waisted pants.

Chung''s influence is also expected to bring an homage to the ''40s and ''60s to the denim company, which is noted for its button-down shirts and form-fitting blue jeans.
