In Their Shoes with Cool Accidents

Tuesday, 29 October 2013

This event was created by Mike Corbett from Warner Sound.
It was a celebrity driven shoe art charity auction, in which all the celebrities who took part in it, got the chance to design their own one of a kind sneaker. Each celebrity was provided with a fresh, all white converses to create their artwork with.
At the end , over 70 pairs of one of a kind sneakers were made and auctioned off. All the proceeds raised on the night went to the Breast Cancer Foundation of Australia or a chosen charity decided by the celebrities.
