FORMER Miss SA Teen first princess has joined a Pietermaritzburg modelling agency to help aspiring models.

Lucky Mthembu (25), who was crowned first princess in Miss SA Teen in 2009, has now joined the up and coming Pietermaritzburg modelling agency, Intsha yoMzansi.

Mthembu who was born in Hammarsdale but raised in Pietermaritzburg also entered the Miss South Africa pageant in 2012 and made it to the top 24.

She said by joining this small agency she wants to encourage upcoming models to compete on a national level.

“I want to them to know that being from a small town should not limit them from entering national competitions.

“I managed to become one of the three finalists in the Miss SA Teen. I was the face of Garnier from 2013 for three years. I modelled for big clothing retailers like the Hub, Jet, Mr Price and also worked with True Love magazine on fashion spreads.

“I have also been a judge for some beauty contests and have also tried public speaking, they need to know that nothing is impossible,” she said.

The founder of Intsha Yomzansi Modelling Agency, Thandokuhle Ndlovu, said they are excited to have Mthembu on board.

“I first meet her in 2010, a year after she entered the Miss SA Teen contest. A couple of weeks ago we got together and decided on this venture. She has been part of the agency for a while now, but in the background, she would come to our rehearsals and give professional advice to our models. I am happy to officially have her on the team to take the business forward.”

Ndlovu said they are trying to organise a Pietermaritzburg Fashion Week.

“Pietermaritzburg is probably the only city without a Fashion Week, we want to change that.

“We are putting together ideas to give local designers a platform to display their talent.”

He said Intsha yoMzansi has showcased at the Vodacom Durban July for six consecutive years.

“With both our experiences combined, we are taking this agency to greater heights,” said Thando.
