A semi-cropped t-shirt printed with the image of a falling man is already on its second print run.
Speaking with Mosman Collective this week, Harry said the idea for garçon d’eau originated during the Covid pandemic as a creative outlet to beat the boredom of lockdown.
“When the pandemic hit Sydney, it meant I couldn’t travel anywhere for work, so I started a podcast, called Really Mental – and also decided to create a unisex fashion label that was truly inclusive,” he said.
The enterprising 21-year-old model is also presenter of popular podcast called “Really Mental”.
Fast forward to 2023, and it’s become a reality.
“I’ve seen a few people wearing the t-shirt and the sweater out on the street. It’s a weird feeling, very surreal.”
Garçon d’eau, which means “water boy” in French, aims to build a community of young people and “creatives” who can contribute and collaborate alongside the brand.
“A water boy is the person who is always on the sidelines, providing a support role but never really being in the spotlight,” Harrison, a former SHORE student, said.
