Sweden native Inga Eiriksdottir was discovered at age fourteen in Iceland. Fluent in five languages (Swedish, Icelandic, English, German and French), Eiriksdottir moved to London at age fifteen to begin her modeling career, lived in Paris and Milan, and finally settled in New York City at age eighteen.
A curvaceous young woman crossing-over to mainstream fashion, Eiriksdottir has appeared in advertising campaigns for Clarins cosmetics, Liz Claiborne, and Versus (Versace’s contemporary counterpart), the latter photographed by Steven Meisel. In addition to the covers of Vogue Australia and Elle Germany, Eiriksdottir’s editorial features include Vogue Russia, Vanity Fair, Elle UK, Harper’s Bazaar, V, W, and Yo Dona magazines, photographed by the likes of Terry Tsiolis and Joshua Jordan. Eiriksdottir also regularly works with Ralph Lauren, Max Mara, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Catherine’s, Kohl’s, Lilliette, La Redoute, JD Williams, Evans, and Elina Miro.
An accomplished quadruple threat—model, actor, musician (accordion), and photographer, Eiriksdottir produced and curated three award-winning photography shows at New York City’s Milk Gallery, and at the United Nations Headquarters. Eiriksdottir is devoted to promoting diversity, and served as a fundraising board member and trustee for Curves For Change, a non-profit organization for models to collectively engage in philanthropic efforts.
