Sabbat has been surrounded by fashion all his life. Both his parents work in the industry, giving him an edge from the start. He claims he never had an interest in modeling until he got his paycheck; tons of zeros on your first check is apparently pretty convincing to a 15-year-old. He steadily rose through the ranks, being handed campaigns with the likes of Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, and other big brands.
