The news of socialite Harry Brant's tragic death sent shockwaves through the fashion world on Monday, January 18. His supermodel mom, Stephanie Seymour, and billionaire dad, Peter Brant, revealed that their son accidentally overdosed one day prior in a statement.
"We will forever be saddened that his life was cut short by this devastating disease," the family's statement read. "He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done."
Harry had been immersed in the fashion and art world since an early age. He was a fixture at fashion shows and exclusive art parties and was known for challenging gender stereotypes through fashion and cosmetics. Apart from being in the fashion social scene, Harry had modeled for Italian Vogue, Balmain campaigns and launched his own unisex makeup line with brother Peter in 2015.
However, wealth and status at such a young age came with trouble. Harry was arrested in 2016 for refusing to pay a cab fare and charged with larceny, interfering with an officer and drug possession. His parents shared that he planned to go to a new drug rehabilitation center before he accidentally overdosed.
