Gunter Ruecker studied at FIT and after working for a clothing firm in his native Germany, he returned to New York. In 1968 he started his own line, Gunter Project 2. At Project 2, Gunter made pants outfits for women. The company that produced Gunter Project 2, G.T.N., was bought by clothing maker Abe Schrader in 1969. The line continued to be made into the 1970s.
Gunter later became a tailoring instructor at FIT.
