Earlier this month, we were honored to sponsor Children Mending Heart’s annual summer fundraiser, Empathy Rocks. The event was a wonderful opportunity to raise funds and awareness for Children Mending Hearts, an organization dedicated to empowering disadvantaged youth by providing educational arts programs that build empathy and global citizenry.
The event consisted of delicious food and lots of amazing activities including tokidoki’s DIY craft station for the kids to enjoy! We are so grateful for the opportunity to support this organization and can’t wait for next year’s CMH event! Check out the photos below to get a glimpse of all of the fun…

In celebration of the Year of the Monkey, the Times Square mall in Shanghai is adorned with twelve larger-than-life tokidoki statues, each representing a month in the lunar calendar. The exhibition’s fashion-focused launch included a press preview showcasing tokidoki’s upcoming China ready-to-wear collection and a personal appearance by tokidoki’s Creative Director Simone Legno.

tokidoki creator Simone Legno spent time in Malaysia visiting fans and sharing his story as an artist.
Day 1: On day one Simone created an amazing live painting for a special press event. He answered questions and demonstrated how he creates some of his most iconic work! The press loved seeing him paint and everyone had a lot of fun.
Afterwards, Simone had lunch with the press and answered more of their questions directly.
Day 2: Simone spoke to a group of young artists and fans in a seminar where he shared his journey as an artist. Everyone got a chance to see some of his rare original childhood art. Simone had a nice surprise during his presentation when he was given some awesome fan art! Take a look at the pillow Pocotee gave him!
Day 3: On the last daySimone got a chance to visit fans up close. He drew special one of a kind art, chatted, and took photos with fans! It was a spectacular event! A special thank you to everyone who came to visit us on our trip!
