The incredible story of how one woman created the world’s most famous swimsuit company.  Mrs. Lea Gottlieb, known as “Mrs. G,” started Gottex in her tiny Tel Aviv apartment. A Holocaust survivor with endless creativity, unbridled passion, and a dominant personality, Mrs. G was able to climb to the pinnacle of the glamorous  fashion world. But ultimately, this success meant navigating complex relationships with her two daughters and making complicated personal decisions while trying to keep her business afloat.
