Fashion show organisers say the event will be filled with "the finest modelling talent on campus with walks from top brands, live music and entertainment, drinks deals, goody bags." Brands such as Topshop, Topman, Lipsy and Doc Marten will be featured.

Coordinator El Clements told The Tab Newcastle: "I never anticipated quite how much is needed to put a show like this together but it has been a huge amount of fun. Its been five months since we started working on it and with the hard work and assistance of our team we’ve managed to pull off something amazing."

Look forward to glitter, food stalls and nail painting. Now, let's meet the models…
