Her looks inspire the best out of designers and photographers worldwide. Her love affair with the camera has been captured by some of the most renown and noted in the industry. In an industry seemingly devoid of interesting characters and unique faces these days, Tessa Kuragi is a testament to old school glamor fused with just the right injection of passion, panache, and heat. In essence, she is the epitome of what the world of fashion yearns for more of.

With her trademark bob and angular features, Tessa’s body of work alternates between high end couture to more fantastically macabre worlds that are brought to light with her dark features. As she jetsets between her London base to Europe, she always brings something fresh, innovative and alluring to the table. Indeed, her body of works includes countless spreads in scores of magazines the world over. She has been muse and model for noted photographers like Stephen Perry, Marc Blackie, and Christian Hough, to name a few.
