Lady of the Daisies

I have mentioned here and here that for quite some time I have been researching the history of the luxury beachwear brand Gottex, and specifically the work if its founder and designer of many years Lea Gottlieb.

I am thrilled to share with you that Design Museum  Holon in Israel is having an exhibition in tribute to this great lady. I had the privilege and honor to contribute research and writing to the history portion of the exhibition, curated by my mentor Ayala Raz.

The exhibition, Lady of the Daisies, includes more than eighty objects from Gottex’s fifty years, as well as catalogs, advertisements,  photographs and personal material.

In addition, I will be giving a talk in this year’s CSA Symposiumin Las Vagas, on Lea Gottlieb’s work. This will be my first time at the CSA Symposium, so I am very excited for the opportunity to share all that I have discovered in the process of writing my thesis.

I am grateful for the amazing people I have met on the way- Mrs. Gottlieb’s right hand for over thirty years Sisi Rosenblum , who has contributed so much to my research and was so generous in sharing her memories and knowledge, Ayala Raz, who has taught me so much in the ten years that I have known her, and of course to Lea Gottlieb herself, who opened her home to me, and created a complex and rich body of work, a true legacy to those who love beauty, art, culture and fashion.

  5. Explore the city on your own, visit the Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, the Swiss Transport Museum,
    the Oldd Town Square, or take a boat trip on Lake Lucerne.
    Dubai is a tourist destination that has a lot of things to offer to its visitors.
    I did not think it wass necessary to have the cduise going for an hour after the fireworks.
