She is of the view that the pageantry industry is slowly fading in on modeling and therefore feels the country should be reminded of the very fine line between the two; hence Lesotho Finest Model event she is hosting later this year. Nonetheless, the aim of giving new models recognition and also encouraging old models comes second to the fundraising of her trip of Miss Heritage International in November at Mauritius.
Outlining more details of this first of its kind event, Tebello Maine showed that this is a competition because there are going to be prizes to take home. Also adding that this will be a great platform for fashion designers to showcase their products through models.
“Within the competition, we will be awarding best swimwear models, photo models, and fitness models within the three categories which are petite female models, plus size female models and male models”, she made known.
Revealing that plus sizes are ranks from size 34 upwards she said she is looking for 39 models all in all; 12 petite, 12 plus size, and the 15 male models.
On the question what change does she want this event to bring in the modeling industry, Maine uttered,
“I am hoping to make it annually which will make models want to become better! To see models at their fullest potential and also in expectation that people will start taking the modeling industry seriously”, she emphasized.
Enlightening that as Miss Heritage Lesotho she is working hand in hand with Finest PTY (ltd) in this project, she accentuated that this competition is opened for every one; those with experience in the industry and those with none.
It is as the interview unveiled that the magazine learned that Maine believes that modeling is the career like many others and people need to bring it to standards where models could earn a living through it.
“The fact that it boosts confidence and make one think of the world as a runaway is just a bonus”, she said.
