Cuth’s Charity Fashion Show 2020: Meet the Models

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side


Fashion show season is well and truly underway once again, with Cuth's being one of the colleges first off the mark with their annual offering.

The 2020 show, themed "Welcome to the Jungle", will see its models take a walk on the wild side in aid of REfUSE Durham, a local charity based in Chester-le-Street, which seeks to reduce food waste. They do this by intercepting food before it becomes waste, and turning it into healthy, accessible meals, which are served on a "Pay As You Feel" basis.

We caught up with eight of this year's models, in order to give you a glimpse at what you can expect from the show next term…
