Uptown Saint John is on the map in the global fashion industry thanks to NWH Modelling & Self Improvement Agency. Owner, Lorraine Peters was thrilled to recently announce that one of her models – Darrelyn Masson – has just signed a contract with a modelling agency in Osaka, Japan. Congratulations to both of these ladies, and best of luck to Darrelyn!
Let’s get to know Lorraine and Darrelyn.
Where were you born/Where are you from?
Lorraine: I was born in St.Stephen N.B and after returning from Modelling in Toronto 32 years ago I settled in Saint John, N.B.
Darrelyn: I was born in Saint John, New Brunswick
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
Lorraine: I have lived and worked in Uptown S.J since 1986
Darrelyn: As long as I can remember!
What is your favorite season, and why?
Lorraine: I love Summer in Uptown S.J because there is an ease of movement in the Summer that matches my personality & style.
Darrelyn: My favourite season is fall because that’s when Halloween is! In Japan, they celebrate Halloween differently than we do. I’ll definitely post a video about it on my YouTube channel (Magical Girl Darrelyn) if I’m not working!
Coffee, Tea or other?
Lorraine: I LOVE coffee and Saint John has so many amazing ways to indulge. Rogue is my new favorite eye candy and caffeine fix.
Darrelyn: I have two adorable rescue cats! One is a black cat named Sephora, and the other is a tuxedo cat named Shimo! Shimo means frost in Japanese. I gave him his name because when he was a stray, he got frostbit on his ears and they got scared. You can see pictures of them on my Instagram @magical_girl_darrelyn
What is your Uptown Insider Tip?
Lorraine: Enjoy the moments of your day in Uptown Saint John. Get your coffee, stroll to your meeting, sit for a moment in the park 🙂
Darrelyn: Go to as many shows uptown as you can, especially the ones at Taco Pica! There are amazing bands that are playing all the time, like Loveover and Thirsty Camel!
