Smile Down the Runway
The qualifying rounds of the Geika festival's fashion show have begun! The grand prize winner of the show will receive funding for starting a brand as well as studying in Paris. For Ikuto, this is the perfect chance to make his dream come true. However, this is a competition, and many talented and passionate participants will also be fighting for this prize. Ikuto will have to face off against tough competitors, such as Toh Ayano, a genius who possesses superb skills. Ikuto's "kouhai," Kokoro Hasegawa, a model who is aspiring to become a fashion designer, is also taking part in this fashion show. After seeing her go through the same disheartening experience he once went through, Ikuto decides to give her some emotional support. Chiyuki, who is about to take on her next challenge, also continues to give Ikuto the push he needs to keep pursuing his dream.
