Alive with beautiful fashion models and sumptuous, colorful fabrics, this film tells the story of Mrs. Lea Gottlieb, legendary Israeli designer and founder/owner of the Gottex swimwear empire. Though Gottlieb’s life was full of crises and challenges, she always prevailed. Through interviews with family and former colleagues, and an array of splendid archival photos of Tel Aviv beaches and fashion runways, the film profiles Mrs. G’s incredible creativeness, her dominant personality, her complex relationships with her two daughters, and her unbridled passion for her work.
