Pantone has proclaimed that PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid is the color of the year for 2014! Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®  says this luscious color is “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” Sew a pair of vibrant orchid lightweight wool slacks, a plum and rose madder tweed jacket lined in limpid navy blue silk charmeuse, and a beguiling floral silk blouse….and get ready for spring!
