Tarun Nijjer, the 19-year-old model from London, is the first male model of Indian descent to reach such success in the fashion industry, and now that he’s working exclusively with Burberry, it won’t be long before his name is just as recognizable as his face. Papermag had enlisted Tarun Nijjer in ‘Beautiful People 2015: Models’ in their April issue and wrote, “Meet 10 of the most exciting new models working today — and check out the wildly diverse ways they redefine the theme of our April issue: the American Dream.”
Nijjer reacting to Papermag featuring him said, “The American Dream? That’s not really still a thing is it? Surely not…” Cocky lad, ain’t he???
Tarun made his significant debut as a model, opening and closing Burberry Prorsum’s fall/winter 2014 show during London Collections: Men. Now, Tarun joins Cara Delevingne in the brand’s fall 2014 campaign, shot by Mario Testino. Among other things, Tarun Nijjer loves his Pug!
