Irene Bilo was born in Montreal. She was a drama major at Concordia University. She speaks four languages fluently including English, Italian, Russian, and French.

Her sense of adventure pulled her to NYC to study theater with Uta Hagan, but she soon found herself in the eye of the fashion storm. She was handpicked by Richard Bernstein to be his assistant at Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine. While working there she came in contact with some of the most important fashion icons of our time including Halston, Grace Jones, Stephen Sprouse, and Andy Warhol. She soon broke out on her own as a fashion stylist.

Her body of work includes music videos, movies, and award-winning commercials. As well as styling, she also designs original costumes. Irene is now bi-coastal, residing in both New York City and Los Angeles.
