Medic esthetic

Gwendolyn Huskens is a designer studying at the design academy in Eindhoven, in the department of Man and identity. At the recent graduation show, she presented a set of six shoes called 'medic esthetic'. aiming to reveal the taboos associated with physical deformities, her collection of cream and skin-toned footwear for women is made from medical materials and supplies such as plaster bandages, steel and band-aids. The result is a line of functional and oddly stylish shoes. Via Today and tomorrow.
