Pakistani actor Fawad Khan seems to have charmed a spell over the Indian women but something which is ever more stunning, latest and novel is the concept of Fashion Fengshui which is getting popular amongst college goers, professionals, Bollywood artists and people at large.
What is Fashion fengshui?
It is a modern and revolutionary dressing technique backed by Feng Shui-the ancient Chinese Art of Placement. It is based on the Five Element theory in Feng Shui. The “Five Elements” is the name that Feng Shui principles give to the colors around us. These elements are Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and each has a particular color, shape, and features. When you wear the colors and shapes that represent a specific Element, you project its attributes.
If you are involved in social activities or want to feel dramatic, then pick up the Fire Element.

If you are involved in the community or family oriented activities or want to feel stable and grounded, wear the Earth Element.

If you are involved with cultural activities or want to feel elegant and stand apart, wear the Metal Element.

If you are involved in artistic, intellectual, and spiritual activities, or want to feel elegant and project strength, wear the Water Element.
