Over the weekend I began to collect the materials I needed for this project. When selecting the wallpaper I was going to use, the importance of colour became very apparent. I had previously planned to use the colour red for the bra which would be placed over both wallpapers however when testing the colours together it became clear that introducing red alongside both black, and a pastel 'children's' colour was too many colours and clashed too much. I decided to stick to a more neutral blue for many elements of the piece. It was not so obviously and garishly sexual but still conveyed the message well.
Colour testing in store:
