BEVERLY GROVE—There's practically no one who rocks denim better than fashion icon/muse Alexa Chung, so it comes as so surprise that AG tapped the it-girl to design a line. Her first collection for the brand was released earlier this year, and the cool pieces sold like hotcakes. This Thursday marks the launch of Chung's new Fall '15 collection and luxe retailer Ron Herman (8100 Melrose Avenue) will be celebrating with an in-store event. From 6:30-8:30pm, guests can shop the new jeans and tees, learn more about the line in a Q&A with the babe herself, and enjoy some refreshments. While RSVPs are not required, those who send one to Krissie@RonHerman.com by end of day Wednesday will have priority entrance to what's sure to be a packed event.

The free show begins at 8pm.
