Color study-Fuchsia

I love fuchsia. Fuchsia is bold, vivid, intense, and flirty!

Fuchsia  is a mix of warm&cool as it is located between the red and purple colors and made by mixing blue and red at full and same intensity.

This color combines the vividness of red and spirituality of purple.

It is a color of change. If you have the desire to bring this color into your life, then you are ready to change your habitual way of life and start something new.

Loved in Hollywood, pure pink is also called a Fashion fuchsia. Color is widely used in women’s fashion, slightly less muted  than shocking or vivid  pink.

Shocking pink takes its name from the shade of pink used on the perfume box Shocking, designed for the Surrealist fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli in 1937.

French fuchsia or bright pink is very popular in France.
