DUCFS 2017: Meet the models

They’re all really attractive

This year the committee of Durham University’s Charity Fashion Show are supporting The International Rescue Committee. This is a charity involved in responding to international humanitarian crises, particularly in Syria. They provide healthcare, food, security and protection for those affected by conflict.

February’s DUCFS is predicted to sell out in three seconds. Below you can probably see why. We asked some of the models who they follow, in accordance with this year’s theme:
