So smart, so fashun


GUCFS is back, and this year it's going to be bigger and better than ever. Hosted in SWG3 on the 23rd February, the first and second standard wave of tickets have already been sold out and everyone is desperate to see who will be modelling this year.

Without further ado, let's meet this year's beautiful cast of models, starting off with the ladies first.

What do you think of this year's chosen charity: I'm super excited that GUCFS is supporting Simon Community Scotland this year.

It’s an issue that effects so many and being able to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause is unreal.

Homelessness is a real issue in Glasgow and so its great that there is an organisation wanting to help.
