Innovative Consulting Solutions was started by Phyllis Shapiro in 2010. She was contacted continually for help and guidance on sourcing, line development, branding and benchmarking from fashion businesses. Seeing a need for start up fashion companies in the new economy to have reliable, individual and practical business advice, ICS grew organically through word of mouth and by delivering solutions.

With her 20 plus year management background in retailing, manufacturing and global sourcing, Phyllis has the ability to jump into situations that are often just a germ of an idea and moves them to reality.

In addition to being the founder and president of Innovative Consulting Solutions, Phyllis is a seasoned educator having held positions at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design in the Fashion Marketing departments where she has influenced and helped launch many current entrepreneurs.
