Uniting with TOMS, District MTV hosted a VIP party to celebrate TOMS One Day Without Shoes. TOMS is the social enterprise focused on a 'one for one' policy that means for every pair of shoes they sell they commit to providing one pair for underprivileged children. Their One Day Without Shoes global event raises awareness for the enterprise every year, and because it's such a great cause, this time District MTV got involved.

Held at the TOMS Monmouth Street pop-up store in Covent Garden, the event saw a live acoustic performance from MTV presenter and soul-voiced Bluey Robinson and DJ sets from Horsemeat Disco and The Lovely Jonjo. VIP guests and friends and family of both District MTV and TOMS enjoyed street food and cocktails while getting their photograph taken without shoes, tweeting and Instagramming them with #withoutshoes @TOMS @DistrictMTV, to raise awareness for the TOMS initiative.
