Rudi Gernreich – dedicated to mothers everywhere

Film by
Alexa Karolinski

Designer Rudi Gernreich and filmmaker Alexa Karolinski produced a documentary-style video exploring the traditions of freedom, utilitarianism and privacy Gernreich intended for his designs. The film is a celebration of motherhood and acts of nursing featuring the iconic Monokini – the first topless bathing suit originally designed by Gernreich in 1964. Each purchase of a Monokini will support the ACLU: 100% of sales at this month will be donated to the organisation.
