  • Durham University Charity Fashion Show
    Durham University Charity Fashion ShowThe Durham University Charity Fashion Show (DUCFS) is the largest student-led charitable event in the United Kingdom. In 2017, DUCFS raised £75,000 for the International Rescue Committee and their groundbreaking work in Syria. Now entering its 35th year, DUCFS will proudly support Mind, the leading mental health charity in England and Wales committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of people across the country. DUCFS is undoubtedly the highest profile and most popular event at Durham University, with 1,600 tickets to the 2017 show selling out in under 2 seconds. DUCFS requires the combined effort of over 19 executive committee members and 50 models to produce an event that is a true spectacle, showcasing up-and coming British designers and international talent. Yet it is more than a show, it is a brand and a movement. DUCFS is an initiative accomplished by combining mediums of art, fashion, music and performance with the goal of capturing an ever-changing youthful spirit. Throughout the year, DUCFS launches 5 pre-show club nights, press evenings, networking events, promotional shoots and videos, all to a collective social media reach of over 100,000 people. We’ve featured in publications such as Tatler and showcased brands who have graced the pages of Vogue, GQ and I-D magazine
