Michiko Koshino is a legend in the Japanese fashion world. She grew up in a family which made kimono for generations. In the 1934, her mother Ayako broke with tradition and opened her own dressmaking shop. Michiko and her two sisters – Hiroko and Junko – grew up in the shop, an experience that would lead each of them to become a famous fashion designer. Michiko’s story, though, is very different from that of her sisters.
