Bigger is much more beautiful
SIZE does matter and bigger is beautiful. These are the sentiments of the organisers of the first Plus-Size Auditions to be held tomorrow.
They are going big on this event which they hope to turn into an annual one, with plus-size fashion blogger and published photographer Lesego “Thick Leeyonce” Legobane (pictured) assisting as a guest judge.
Fabian Sebogodi, one of the organisers said that only one person will be chosen to represent not only their heritage, but also the Northern Cape. But, the contestant can expect strong competition as representatives from other African countries such as Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi and Zimbabwe will also be competing.
“The sole representative will go on to do an exclusive photoshoot with Leeyonce by wearing items from her clothing range, Lee-Bex.
“This will open doors for the winner and it will also give her exposure in the plus-size model industry,” Sebogodi said.
The event will be held at the William Humphreys Art Gallery tomorrow at 9am with registration starting at 8:30 am.
