Harry Curran feels the most beautiful when the sun is shining and the weather is sweet. Powerful looking, his strong features, long mahogany hair and hazel eyes are incredibly captivating. Unaware of his Adonis-like appearance, 22-year-old Harry grew up in Southend on Sea, preferring to spend time alone, record crate digging in a beanie and some baggy sweats or just daydreaming. First scouted on the tube, this Fine Art student is currently juggling modelling and his studies and still can’t quite get his head around how he has made his way into high fashion, which is of course his charm. A dedicated collector of quality, vintage reggae, Rasta vinyls, Harry doesn’t bother worrying about a thing because he knows every little thing is gunna be alright! We caught up with the relaxed lad to find out how he stays so chilled and remains centered in such a frenetic industry.
