SHE’S EVERYWHERE: Alexa Chung has been a frequent front-rower at fashion shows for years, so it’s fitting that she will host the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Future of Fashion show.

The British Vogue contributing editor will be on the FIT campus at the May 1 event, which Calvin Klein will sponsor. Chung, who is Glamour Italia’s current cover girl, spoke of her respect for emerging designers. “It takes a lot of guts to have your hard work put on display for others to critique and judge. The fashion industry can be a rude awakening for new designers, and FIT offers these students an amazing opportunity to get a glimpse of what they can expect in the ‘real world,’” she said.
