Harry Brant Biography – Harry Brant Wiki
Harry Brant (Harry Joseph Brant) was a model, entrepreneur, and the son of model Stephanie Seymour and businessman Peter Brant. The younger son of Peter M. Brant, an industrialist, publisher and art collector, and Stephanie Seymour, one of the original supermodels, Brant grew up around the glitterati of the style and art worlds. He was a familiar presence at fashion shows and international parties at a young age, attending the Met Gala at age 16. He attended Bard College but did not graduate.
Brant had appeared in Italian Vogue and in campaigns for the fashion house Balmain. He also was a columnist for Interview magazine. According to his parents, he had been planning to enter a new drug rehabilitation center this year, and had hoped to return to play a larger role in the creative side of Interview magazine. He had previously released a unisex makeup line with his brother, Peter Brant, Jr., for MAC cosmetics, releasing collections in 2015 and 2016.
In an interview with W magazine before one of the MAC kickoffs, Brant said, “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. Makeup is all about fantasy and turning yourself into someone you might not necessarily be on an everyday basis, so you kind of get to escape for a night with this new persona. That’s what I always did.”
