Tzuri Gueta is a hard man to label: he is a designer, a craftsman, a scientist, and an explorer all in one. He graduated from Shenkar College of Textile Sciences and Fashion in Israel in 1996 and 3 years later went to France where his striking portfolio almost immediately got him a job in a design studio. It was not long before he attracted the attention of haute-couture design houses such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, and Dior. Virtually from the Kibbutz to the Catwalk in record time, he attributes a lot of his success to life in rural Israel. Through experimentation, Gueta developed a way to extrude hot silicone through silk tubes and lace fabrics to create these luscious forms. Tzuri Gueta’s engineering training gives him the skills to explore matters audaciously behind several collaborations with the Haute Couture industry. An exhibition at the Centre Pompidou and collaboration with Givenchy, Armani, and Dior has launched Tzuri Gueta on the international circuit.
