I believe that my samples have on the whole been very successful. The deep blue, blood red, pink and brown colour scheme is dynamic and eye catching, especially the contrast of the bright red with the other more muted tones which produces a sinister blood-like effect linking to my theme. I particularly like the effect of the stuffed bulges and reverse appliquéd blood stains and love the way the intricate beading and embroidery clashes with the disturbing motifs of blood and distortion. They also provide the fabrics with a sense of beauty allowing them to be used in a commercial setting. I think that the fabrics would both be successful in a fashion or interior design context as well as a fine art installation making a statement about destructive fishing practices.
