"You were once the muse of my masterpiece, but now, you have become everyone's. What must I do to keep you for myself a bit longer? Should I just paint more of you? But a portrait could never capture your true beauty. What I've always been longing for is the one you have within - everything that makes you my one and only Lillian Daffodil, the muse of my dreams."
I've never heard such heartfelt words before.
At that very moment, as I stand before this man - a breath-takingly gorgeous sculpture of perfection in and out, I find myself feeling like I have turned back to those days when I'm just but a mere countryside girl. In his eyes, perhaps, I'll always be that girl -
That girl who's so unladylike and stubborn, had her heartbroken at her worst, and repelled people due to how peculiar she was.
Even then, he accepted that girl despite everything.
"I love you, Lily..."
And has actually even fallen in love with the old me who used to have nothing.
--- Synopsis ---
Love and dreams don't just fall from the sky - there are tears to be shed and things to be made right.
At the age of sixteen, Lillian Daffodil still has no idea of who she wants to be. Her unladylike mien, peculiar sense of creativity and hoydenish behavior would always keep her from seeing her true charm and ability.
Lost and with no destination in mind, underestimated for being a commoner, persecuted by envious peers, and unfortunate in matters of love - a girl could only take so much but even then, she just continued to move forward in hope to find what her heart was seeking all the time.
Little did she know that a significant discovery could change her life forever - Lillian Daffodil soon becomes known as the "Lady of Many Trades" and the first ever fashion model of the empire.
Yet just when she firmly decided to focus on her ventures after a series of heartbreaks, the most sought-after bachelors in the city also begin to make romantic advances towards her -
Enter the son of a Count who keeps encouraging her to find her passion, a playboy with a sketchy sideline job, a designer who strives to revolutionize the fashion industry, and a travelling peddler with a big secret to reveal.
When romance and ambitions come together, a fashion fairytale starts to unfold.
