Are you a lover of PHASHUN but are searching for a great cause to donate to? Well, boy do we have the event for you.

Faisean Éire's unique Fashion Showcase will exhibit stunning pieces from novel Irish designers tonight at 7pm in the Chocolate Factory, and it's set to be quite the night.

Proceeds from the evening will be donated to Pieta House, whose 'Two in Eight' campaign reflects the statistic that one in four people in Ireland will experience mental health issues at some stage of their lives.

Performances will include a catwalk show with 30 gorgeous and unique pieces designed by 10 fashion grads and students.

The show will bring three art forms together in a spectacular charity event; a fashion show from professional and diverse designers, murals on the walls of an industrial setting and last but not least, aerial artists showcasing their skills.

Chloé Commins and Polly Shapkina are two aerialists featured in the event, who will be using hoops and silk to impress the fashion-forward guests.

The pioneering show 'Two in Eight' marks the shocking statistic that one in four people in Ireland will suffer from mental health problems; Pieta House will use the funds to help counsel those with suicidal ideation.

Sinéad Ronan Wells, Fundraising Executive for Pieta House, commented on the vital need for events such as these;

Pieta House operate a network of centres across the country, employing 270 qualified therapists. In 2018 we saw over 7,000 clients who were either at risk of suicide, engaging in self-harm, or bereaved by suicide," she added.

"Demand for our one to one, free, professional counselling services continues to grow year on year which would be unattainable without public fundraising initiatives such as this," she concluded.

It's a crucial cause, why not attend a catwalk show of ground-breaking Irish artists for only €25? Don't miss your chance to get the first glimpse of Ireland's future famous faces.

It certainly seems fashion fever is taking the world by storm this week.

Of course, right now New York is in the middle of hosting its coveted fashion week; but that doesn't mean Ireland is getting left behind, no siree.

In fact, designer department store Brown Thomas has now seriously upped its fashion game – heralding the arrival of MAJOR new labels in Limerick and Galway with an exclusive show. 

Yes, international designers positively flooded Co Limerick's Adare Manor, with several firm favourites filling the catwalk.

Top models Roz Purcell, Sarah Morrissey and Ciara Buckley were on hand to show off the new collections – and much of the attire is really eye-catching.

In particular, Roz stunned wearing an electric blue Roland Mouret number; with Ciara Buckley showcasing a popular black Self Portrait jumpsuit. 

Sarah Morrissey won us over wearing a Diane Von Frustenberg dress and Jimmy Choo leather thigh-high boots. 

Taking place last Friday afternoon, more than 120 stylish guests – including fashion's influential Celia Holman Lee – were treated to champagne and canapes before all the action kicked off. 

Among the new brands welcomed to Brown Thomas Limerick are Roland Mouret, Sportmaz, Victoria Beckham Denim (yes!), Cocoa Cashmere, Harris Wharf and Paige Denim. Jimmy Choo and Isabel Marant were also welcomed to the footwear department. 

Meanwhile, new brands introduced to Brown Thomas Galway include Harris Wharf and Cocoa Cashmere, with Isabel Marant also arriving to their shoe collection. 

Key trends from the international runway were also unveiled on the day, giving attendees the chance to jump the gun and embrace the latest looks before anyone else. 

So for A/W '15 and S/S '16 you'll need to get your head around the likes of Retro Futuristic, Couture Construction and Gothic Girl (all three of which were among our favourite key trends showcased on the afternoon). 

The fashion show opened with Peter Pilotto, followed by Roksanda and Mary Katrantzou and ended with the dramatic (swoon!) Victoria Beckham
