  • Viola Haqi is a Dutch fashion model of mixed Dutch and Iraqi heritage. Her mother worked at an insurance company and her father was a chef. Haqi auditioned for the Conservatory of Amsterdam, but turned it down because of the six lonely years of training it would take. She entered into modeling when a model stopped her on the street and convinced her to come back to her modeling agency. After moving to Paris, her career in modeling started to take off as she was featured in 13 French Elle covers in the course of one year. She moved to New York two years later and found herself earning a successful career in the advertising and catalogue market. Haqi became part of the rock band "Mink" and later "Dare Me Down", shuffling her time between modeling jobs and gigs at New York City venues like Brownies, Sina-i, Don Hill's and more. Two years after her move to London, she came back to New York to restart her career back at Q Management, cultivating advertising campaigns for Oil of Olay, ROC, La Perla, Thermasilk, Galenic, Redken and Biore; television commercials for Lexus, Clairol, Lee Jeans, and many more; her covers include " Harper's Bazaar", Shape and Eve magazines.
