March 2009 – Andréa Dupont used to be Penny Ackerman. Ackerman had spiky red hair and a closetful of animal print, leather and sparkly clothes. She lived in small rural town, had money and self-confidence issues, and wasn’t all that happy. Eight years ago, Ackerman became Andréa Dupont, a combination of her middle and maiden names. Today, she has stylishly coiffed platinum hair and a closetful of casually elegant designer-label clothes, lives in an up and coming area, is making more money than she ever has, and is a “very happy camper.”

What happened eight years ago to create such a transformation in Ackerman/Dupont’s look and life? She discovered Fashion Feng Shui.
Fashion Feng Shui is the groundbreaking transformational dressing technique created by internationally recognized Feng Shui Practitioner and award winning Professional Image Consultant Evana Maggiore. Maggiore, the author of FASHION FENG SHUI The Power of Dressing with Intention, which has been endorsed by visionary healer and frequent Oprah guest Christiane Northup, MD ( as taking “personal style to a whole new deeper healing level,” teaches individuals how to empower their lives by empowering their personal appearance.

Here in the UK on Monday 6th April, with the special UK price of £235 per delegate (includes a personalised copy of Fashion Feng Shui - The Power of Dressing with Intention.

Maintaining that you can take control of your life, simply by taking control of your closet, Maggiore bases her holistic personal design system on Five Element Theory. The foundation of both Feng Shui, a 3000 year old body of knowledge that connects environment to empowerment, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which teaches that the laws of nature can be used to understand the body, mind and spirit. Five Element Theory teaches that everyone and everything can be evaluated, physically and energetically, according to five life forming elements, Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. Each of these elements represents a distinct quality of energy and a particular colour shape, substance, style of human behaviour and physiology.

Maggiore, the first person to apply this ancient wisdom to fashion and personal style, translates Five Element Theory to personal appearance and lifestyle using Fashion Feng Shui’s 5 Elemental Archetypes, WATER The Philosopher, WOOD The Pioneer, FIRE The Pleasure Seeker, EARTH The Peacemaker and METAL The Perfectionist. Each of these Elemental Archetypes is classified according to what Fashion Feng Shui labels as Essence (innate values), Intention (goals) and Appearance (body colouring and shape and the clothing design elements of hue, pattern, texture and silhouette). Maggiore says that conscious clothing choices address all three areas so that everything one wears is fulfilling, functional, fortifying and flattering. “Your clothes should look just like you, physically and energetically. Physically, so that they look great, but more importantly, energetically, so that they honour your personal values, befit your lifestyle, and naturally attract your desires.”

Mimi is an on-the-rise artist. Five years ago, Mimi was dressing in conservative, preppy-style clothing, struggling with relationship and prosperity issues, and painting small, tight pictures. Today, Mimi’s wardrobe consists of clothes that are as free-flowing and creative as she is, her relationships and bank account have dramatically improved, and her painting style has become so expansive that her oversized pictures have gained her notoriety and prime spots in respected galleries.

Five years ago Mimi discovered Fashion Feng Shui.
