"He achieved a lot in his 24 years, but we will never get the chance to see how much more Harry could have done," they said. 

The up-and-coming model had been involved in campaigns for Balmain and was featured in Italian Vogue. Harry and his brother Peter Brant Jr. had also released a unisex makeup line for MAC cosmetics.
