It’s strangely true my memory
is stronger of my mom than dad.
He left us all when I was six
including too my little sister.
It scared me when my mom broke free
but power was what was intended.
“Atelier” means workshop or studio and in this case it is about lingerie* designed and produced to individual customer order. Seriously.
Our young, recent-university-graduate protagonist adores textiles and human curves, and goes to work for Emotion Lingerie. Where she learns a lot plus coming of age plus .. well ..
At first I thought this might be a Japanese version of “The Devil Wears Prada” but from there it goes way beyond. Our heroine is no wimp! Nor is her boss : ) No spoilers here!
*I apologize** for images of underwear designs and underwear models in this drama – Shazai shimasu! 謝罪します!
**But not very much – Shikashi sorehodo ōku wanai! しかしそれほど多くはない!
I seem to live between appointments
with doctors of the health profession
who read the omens of my being
and give me counsel I should follow.
And in the case that I resist,
My life expectancy will lessen.
