Name That Colour Contest

Name That Colour Contest by Colleen Kanna, Photo by rawpixel on Unsplash
Hello "Keeping Abreast" Subscribers,
I need your help. My new fall/winter designs are coming out in three colours: fuchsia, blue, and classic black. I thought we could have a little fun with a "Name That Colour" contest.
I would like each of the colours to have colourfully descriptive names. When you close your eyes and hear the name, you can vividly picture the colour in your mind.

I have names for two of the colours:

Silky Blue
Midnight Black

But, I am having trouble coming up with a name for the fuchsia or hot pink. What do you think? Can you help me out?

Here's a photo of the colours to give you inspiration:

Name That Colour: ___________Fuchsia

Please fill in the blank: ______________ Fuchsia, or ______________ Pink

I would like the name to complement the "look up to the sky" theme of Silky Blue and Midnight Black.

Please put on your creative thinking caps and submit your colourful name choice by Friday, September 21, 2018. That gives you just over two weeks to come up with the winning name. If your colour name is selected, you will receive a 20% off coupon to use on your next online purchase of one of our new Fall styles.

There are four ways to enter:

  1. Simply add your hot pink name to the comments below
  2. Email your entry to
  3. PM me at COKANNA on Facebook
  4. DM me at cokannadesigns on Instagram

Let the names roll in…can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks so much for your help.
