Living behind the @tomsabbotkinney store here in Venice I thought to throwback to a SunM⚭nRain X @toms collaboration where I was honoured & humbled to be one of the eight Singaporean artists/designers/business owners invited to transform Toms classic shoes into a work of Art. ・・・
Here is the note that I added to my original post too 4 years ago that hold true till today: ・・・
Note: TOM's Shoes is a brand that I just love & respect. It is a testament on how you can follow your passion and give back to the community at the same time. @blakemycoskie , who founded this brand is one of my inspirations. I always say, when SunMoonRain grows up, we want to be just like TOMS Shoes. So when they reached out to me for this collaboration, it really was a manifestation of sorts. ・・・

'Walking On Sunshine' by Shabnam Melwani from SunMoonRain for The Art Of Giving.
A symbol of strength & happiness, Shabnam uses the Sunflower symbol, also her brands logo, as it brings good energy & represents optimism & positivity as they grow towards the sun and hence “always look on the bright side.” It represents Life & its vibrant movement from joyous youth to the ageless wisdom of maturity.
Shabnam uses copper hematite stones, known to transform negative energy to positive energy in this creation, in combination with Swarovski crystals for a touch of glam & bling.
