Harry Brant Career
Known for experimenting with gender in fashion and beauty, they founded a unisex makeup line together with MAC called Brant Brothers, which released collections in 2015 and 2016.
He told W Magazine during the launch: ‘I really think that once you leave high school, you realize that being normal is something that people want to shy away from, and the more true you are to yourself and the more individual you are, the more people are inherently attracted to you.’
Harry made appearances in Vanity Fair and New York Magazine from a young age, often attending fashion shows and other A-list events, including the Met Gala when he was 16.
In addition to modeling for Balmain and Italian Vogue, he was also a teen columnist for his father’s Interview Magazine, and they hoped to have him play a larger creative role in the publication after attending rehab this year.
The socialite was arrested back in 2016, after refusing to pay a cab fare in Greenwich, Connecticut, for which he was charged with larceny, interfering with an officer, and drug possession.

Grateful that Harry Brant’s family is open about his cause of death. Part of reducing the stigma around addiction means being honest about how this disease affects every strata of society.
