Through her successful career in the fashion and retail industries, Ilene has gained invaluable expertise in design , merchandising, sales, marketing and retail buying.
She was recruited by Kayser- Roth, a Fortune 500 Consumer Goods leader, after earning a B.S. in Marketing and Design from the University of Maryland. Ilene moved to New York where she worked with several well-known Seventh Avenue design firms.
Developing her skills as a quality - first textile and fashion specialist during repeated global sourcing trips, she was recognized and then recruited to be a product development expert.
Successes with specialty retailers and individual consumers alike, Ilene made a serendipitous discovery—her innate sense of style, facility for working with fabrics and colors, her genuine gift to nurture and solve fashion problems could become a personalized customer wardrobe solutions service.
The progression to Certified Image Consultant was a natural transition. Ilene utilizes her abilities in evaluating body shape, movement, and coloring as well as synthesizing optimal cuts, lines, colors, and textures.

She has lectured at The Fashion Institute of Technology on “ The A,B,C’s of Style,” worked collaboratively on styling and sales volume successes for Ralph Lauren on both the retail and buying sides.
Ilene has been been quoted in the press and industry publications including ABC TV Business News, Crain's New York Business, Women's Wear Daily and The Bergen Record of Northern New Jersey.
