The character of Aouda, played by Rasika Ranganathan, makes the journey with Phileas Fogg from India back to London. Her act two traveling suit needed to fulfil several criteria: It needed to illustrate the period of the 1880's. It needed to show the change of weather from the warm waters off the coast of Hong Kong to the cold winter plains of the American West. It needed to represent Aouda's journey beginning in India, and ending in London. It needed to accommodate the movement as Rasika sailed, tumbled, danced, and fought towards the climax of the story. Mostly it needed to fit in the big, colorful, bright, action-packed world of Around the World in 80 Days.
