Zak Srakeaw has become the first Thai male “face” of international fashion brand Burberry, following in the footsteps of his female compatriot Jan Baiboon.

Jan hit the global limelight when she sashayed down Burberry’s London catwalk in February.

Now, Zak has been chosen to front the “Burberry Holiday 2020” video campaign, currently appearing on screens around the world.

Born in Roi Et province, Zak moved with his mother to Manchester in the north of England at the age of 11.

Despite his classic Isaan looks and 6-foot frame, Zak’s big break in modelling didn’t come easy. He said he faced many disappointments but refused to give up, before finally catching the eye of Burberry.
