If you have ever dawned a sleek and sexy bathing suite at the beach or at the side of a pool, then your life has been influenced by fashion legend, Leah Gottlieb. The Israeli designer was the heroin that injected glamour into once mundane and modest bathing suites. She designed over 300 suites that were coveted by royalty, celebrities and fashion aficionados alike. Gottex Swim-suites (Gottlieb Textiles for short) were sold in Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales. Stores from Paris to Dallas carried her creations. At the age of 94, Mrs. Gottlieb passed away, as we all wish we could, leaving the world much more beautiful then she found it!
