NICHE EXPERIENCE – Behind the Scenes


On June 9th at the NICHE Inspiration Ball, guest Misty Hillard was the winner of the incredible NICHE Experience. Prize partners included NICHE magazine, Jamie Mann Photography, Sara Rose Makeup Artistry, and OPUS Hotel Vancouver.

A lawyer and mother of two, Misty travelled to Vancouver for this experience of a lifetime. The shoot took place at Studio 207, photographer Jamie Mann’s creative work space in Gastown, and under the expert guidance of stylist, hair stylist and makeup artist Sara Rose, Misty was transformed into an ultra-chic fashion model.  Mann worked his photographic genius on Misty for several hours, trying different looks and in a variety of gorgeous garments and accessories pulled from notable Vancouver boutiques Standing Armed, OAK + FORT, Timeline and Nikita Sing.

After receiving the ultimate super model treatment, Misty retreated to the Opus Hotel Vancouver in Yaletown to unwind and spend the night in extraordinary comfort and fashionable luxury.

The final produced version was printed on pages 60, 61 and 62 of the Fall Issue of NICHE magazine. Click here to view the print version here
