[ Story ]

Aya successfully stages a fashion show in Osaka and in the train on her way home to Tokyo accidentally treads on a man's foot. The man whose name is Rentaro is not amused. Just afterwards she notices that he is reading a magazine which carries her picture which he crushes and throws under his seat.
One of her customers in Tokyo is a pretty girl named Kana for whom she had designed a dress which at first seems quite satisfactory. But a few days later Kana brings it back. It seems her brother thinks it terrible. But when Kana brings the dress back she meets Aya's brother, Takeshi, with whom she becomes friendly and Takeshi gives her a new dress which he smuggles out of his sister's office.
When Aya finds Kana's discarded dress and misses one belonging to another customer she goes to see Kana's brother, and to her surprise finds him to be the fellow whose foot she'd stepped upon in the train.
Ignoring Aya and Rentaro, Kana and Takeshi go for a drive but after saying goodbye he finds that he's forgotten to give her a birthday present. So he climbs up a drainpipe of her college dormitory only to be discovered by the matron. This brings on another row between Aya and Rentaro. Aya is against Takeshi marrying Kana and Takeshi leaves home.
Aya's second fashion show in Tokyo is a flop; but to her surprise Rentaro is sympathetic.
When Rentaro visits his sister and finds Takeshi's photograph, on the back of which are scribbled sentiments of affection, he understands their love for each other and persuades Aya to permit them to become engaged. And Aya, too, now finds that Rentaro is not only clever and generous, but a man she can love.
