Cuth’s Charity Fashion Show 2023: Meet the Models

The (not so) secret gardeners


This year’s fashion show season looks promising, with Cuth’s recently throwing a launch event to announce those who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk.

The 2023 show, themed as the Secret Garden, will be held in aid of Real Lives: Real Choices, a charity which aims to provide learning and personal development to those with learning difficulties, complex needs and mental health conditions.

We’ve already spoken to the Exec on what makes a charity fashion show, but now we’ve had the opportunity this year to interview (by that, I mean send out a google form) to some of the participating models this year to “assess the vibes” of this year’s show.
