Through its new collection, TOMS takes a stand on issues that truly matter.
Distinguished as the charity-oriented brand behind the One for One model, TOMS is now collaborating with CRIBS Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides a loving and safe environment for young women who are working to overcome sexual abuses.
Together with Arianna Cowper, a young Filipina model and a dedicated volunteer of CRIBS Foundation, TOMS Philippines’ Stand for Tomorrow along with its Venice Collection was launched. Arianna believes that every child has the right to be protected from sexual abuse and she encourages everyone to stand for a good cause. Her courageous support for the campaign is not only revolutionary for young models like her, but it is also the same for TOMS who aims to put a soul in every sole.
The Venice Collection is just as full of passion as Arianna is. It is TOMS’ expression of its passion to support the cause behind the footwear it creates. Named after Venice, the birthplace of TOMS, a city of color and hip culture where artists and activists collaborate for progress, the collection presents a new approach on their classics as it showcases a daring selection of its iconic Alpargata, Cordones, and Botas.
