Meet the models appearing in the Newcastle RAG fashion show 2018: The girls
It’s happening tomorrow
We've met the boys, now it's the girls turn.
Newcastle's charity fashion show will return on Thursday in the SU to raise money for Friends of Conservation, Women for Women International, Coppafeel and Oddballs and these gorge gals will be walking the runway.
The show is joining forces with Newcastle Fashion Society and is featuring brands such as Topshop, Topman, Lipsy and Doc Marten.
Coordinator Chess Ridley told The Tab Newcastle: "Modelling in the show the two previous years, I've seen how it has constantly improved year on year so it's a huge honour to be part of continuing that. Its a huge show, bringing together people from all across the university all to raise money for amazing causes."
