Big­ger is much more beau­ti­ful

Diamond Fields Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
