TOMS The Art of Giving Gallery


TOMS takes their ONE for ONE movement to another level by inviting a few of the country's most creative, young talents in the fashion, art, and design industries to design a pair or two of TOMS Shoes. The customized shoes will then be displayed in TOMS' newest store in SM Aura, and auctioned to the highest bidder through this "The Art of Giving Gallery" campaign. True to the brand's vision, proceeds will go to each artist's chosen charities.

Here are the designers and their works for TOMS Art of Giving Gallery and Auction:

Escape
