Savile Row tailor Carol Alayne has designed a sleek tunic for writer/ performer Yang-May Ooi, picking up the Chinese theme of the show while creating a timeless feminine shape to sit on top a pair of rugged jeans. The simplicity of the design belies the powerful impact of the costume, in keeping with the minimalist principles underlying the creative vision for Bound Feet Blues.
