Even though Sahib Singh is just four years old, he has already contributed to history.

He became the first Sikh model for Burberry Children after getting his dream job, and he was the first to wear a patka, the traditional headdress worn by Sikh boys before they advance to the pagri turban.

Sahib, who is based in London, is surrounded by teddies that are modeled like the famous Burberry Thomas Bear and are dressed in the company’s characteristic honey-brown hue in images for the next A/W collection.

He appears to be a top model in his teddy-print puffer jacket, matching cardigan, and tan shorts and socks.

But more than that, he’s demonstrating to individuals from all walks of life the value of diversity and teaching underrepresented kids that their culture need not stand in the way of achievement.

In an interview with Vogue India, Sahib’s mother Harjot Kaur, who manages his Instagram account, said: “Sahib had a fantastic day with the Burberry team, who truly looked after all the kids they were shooting with.”

“To witness our son, who does appear different from his friends, being given a chance by the legendary British company was certainly a landmark moment,” the parents said.

Sahib has gotten an outpouring of love from the South Asian community after posting the shoot on Instagram, with comments and shares skyrocketing.

Ranjeet Singh, the father, said: “The feedback has been quite encouraging. How huge this has gotten is something we’re still struggling to grasp! The South Asian community has gone above and beyond to show our little Singh how much they care.

Sahib is a pro at castings and is represented by the South Coast Kidz agency, but his parents make an effort to protect him from the less glamorous aspects of the fashion business.

We have experienced a few disappointments when Sahib isn’t hired, Harjeet wrote on Instagram. Since he doesn’t need to experience the emotions associated with the shootings, we have never informed him before they are totally confirmed.

British-Punjabi Londoner Neelam Gill was the first Indian model ever cast by Burberry in 2013, and the following year, Tarunjit Nijjer became the first Indian model to open a show (and star in a campaign alongside Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse).

Sahib is undoubtedly in good company given that he is a pioneer himself.

We’re confident that you’ll see more of the tiny supermodel in the future.
