Popular US singer Fantasia Barrina‚ who won season 3 of American Idol‚ has given local designer Gert-Johan Coetzee the thumbs up after wearing one of his dresses.

Fantasia was making a guest appearance on American cooking show The Chew on Thursday when she snapped herself wearing a GJC number.

She tagged our local guy and called herself a “caramel honey”.

Gert has confirmed that he was approached to create a few dresses for the singer and that this particular dress is from his latest Spring Summer 2016 collection.

“Suede is a big trend‚ and flowy drapery combined with curve-hugging pencil skirts is a look that has been huge this season. It has been one of my most popular ranges so far‚ and I think it is because it flatters the South African woman’s curvy body shape. It’s great to know that it works just as well internationally!” – TMG Entertainment
