'Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia' featuring couture pieces from Ireland's top fashion designers, was the idea of 11 year old  Mia Keaveney.  The clothes featured were based on Mia's own sketches with the event raising much-needed funds for the orthopaedic and ophthalmic clinics in Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.

Lisa Cannon was MC on the night and the designers involved in this special event included John Rocha, Louise Kennedy, Tyrrell & Brennan, Peter O'Brien, Matt Doody, Deborah Veale, Louis Copeland, Joanne Hynes, Joanna London, Jennifer Rothwell, Mary Grant and Caroline Kilkenny.

Among those out to lend their support were Fair City's Aoibhinn Garrihy, former Irish GAA player
Jason Sherlock, comedian Alan Shortt, who all enjoyed entertainment from Ryan Sheridan, Brian Kennedy and The Nualas.
