Two Ladies from Kyoto_Madame Ikuko Nakano & Madame Setsuko Sughara

Dear Shaded Viewers,

A few years ago when I was having lunch with my friend Shoji Fujii we met the two lovely ladies from Kyoto. We’ve planned a rendez-vous every year when they visit Paris but last year they did not come. Shoji ran into them this summer when he was in Kyoto and they said that they would see us again in November. They love fashion and along with coming to Paris to see friends and  go to the opera, they also like to shop.We had lunch at the Ritz with them before going up to visit their room…
