It is rare for the audience to get close enough to the costumes to see the surprisingly fine details. The level of care and detail taken by the costume designer and costume makers layers depth of meaning into the garment and supports the dancers' transformation into character on stage. The stones in the buttons pictured here will also reflect light, amplifying the dancer’s movements.
