I have researched into Chinese foot binding, pining fabric on the stand to replicate this and carrying out shape development. When looking at pictures of bound feet, the way in which they had been done so reminded me of pleats in fabric, which led to me creating a sample showing this. The tight pleats in the fabric, then reminded me of bones and the skeleton structure.
