Foreign Objects

Fernando Gutierrez

Gaitor boots. Part of the graduation collection for CCS, 2021.

A collection of objects meant to appear to come from an unknown place, the product of a developed cultural group outside the mainstream. A tribe for the alienated.

In an effort to create unique and innovative material finishes for this collection, Fernando developed a variety of object dyeing techniques produced by applying steel rust onto vegetable tanned leather and textiles.
