Evana Maggiore, founder of Fashion Feng Shui®, led a colorful life and left us a legacy that is at once soulful and stylish. A native of Boston and a graduate of UMass Amherst, she was a professional image consultant who expanded her business to include Feng Shui. Together with her dear friend Louise Elerding, she worked to create Fashion Feng Shui®, the first practice that connected the art of Chinese placement to fashion and personal style. She was an esteemed lecturer and inspiring teacher, bringing Fashion Feng Shui® to hundreds around the world. In 2001, Evana established the Love Yourself! Project, an annual day of holistic pampering for the guests of the Boston-based women's shelter Rosie's Place. She was a certified image professional, a charter member and vice-president of the Association of Image Consultants International, a member of the Fashion Group International and the International Feng Shui Guild, and a beloved colleague, friend, sister, wife and mom.
Evana fought a long battle with ovarian cancer and we lost her in 2013. Her legacy lives on through Fashion Feng Shui International, which continues to provide training and consultations through a network of licensed facilitators throughout the world.
