Her father, Drederick, played professionally in Australia for the Bulleen Boomers Irving lived in the Melbourne suburb of Kew before relocating to the United States when she was three years old. Her mother, who was Sioux, died of an illness when she was five, so Drederick raised her with the help of Irving's aunts.

She later earned her associate of arts degree in fashion merchandising from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After earning a degree, Irving is now a freelance men's wardrobe stylist. 

Career Edit

Irving began her career as model and swiftly became one of the most influential people in the fashion industry. Although she works with high-profile clients and has developed her own recognizable style, she does not have any formal fashion training. Since her brother is an NBA All-Star, it gave her the opportunity to meet and work with some high-profile clients. She has also worked as a freelance men's wardrobe stylist, and has helped design outfits for many prominent NBA and WNBA talent. 

Irving and  Sydney Smith opened a clothing boutique called Elizabeth Smith in the Northeast Ohio; the boutiques carry the concept, 'young contemporary with a distinct edge.' In June 2017, Irving starred in an episode of the Houzz series My Houzz, in which she surprised her father with a major home renovation. In 2018, Irving created a clothing line, "90s x Purpose ", a nostalgic collection of 90's inspired t-shirts that feature cartoons to remind us to live freely in our truth and fuel our creative exploration and she continues to work on new designs for the line.
