There are few women with as multifaceted a perspective on the fashion world as Alexa Chung. Not only has she worked behind the scenes — first as a model in her teens, and later as a designer in collaboration with brands like Madewell and AG — but she's a muse to labels like Mulberry and Chanel and a front-row favorite, and her friendships with scenesters and designers all over the world have allowed her unparalleled access into the industry's most fabulous events. 

Despite this firsthand experience, Chung is still hungry for more knowledge about the inner workings of fashion. So she teamed up with Vogue UK to film an online docuseries that explores a number of industry-centric topics in-depth, sourced from Google search results, reader submissions on Facebook and suggestions from the British Fashion Council. The teaser for the show was released on Thursday, and while the "how to make it in fashion" theme seems to be the most popular, Chung also will also discuss psychology, diversity, body image, education and more in the coming episodes.

What makes us most excited to watch is the impressive list of guests that she was able to wrangle for the web show, which includes Christopher Kane, Paul Smith and Olivier Rousteing of Balmain. Rousteing has a particularly powerful story about how he got to where he is today, being that he was an orphan and is of mixed race — a rarity in his native Paris. Whether you work in fashion, you aspire to or you just have a healthy curiosity about what it's really like on the inside, you should probably bookmark Vogue UK's YouTube channel ahead of the premiere on Sept. 15.
