Talking business and money with Gert-Johan Coetzee

As featured in Destiny Connect

Beginning with only R400, designer Gert-Johan Coetzee has built a fashion empire that has both local and international celebrities knocking at his door. He sat down with DESTINY Connect to share the business lessons he’s learnt

With only two weeks to go until SA Fashion Week, designers are hurriedly adding the final stitches to their garments in the final countdown to the big parade. But one of the biggest names in African fashion, Gert-Johan Coetzee is as cool as ice as he prepares for his showcase.

The designer, who has dressed celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian, Kelly Rowland, Bonang Matheba, Basetsana Kumalo and Cindy Nel, took some time out from sketching gowns to share some business lessons he’s learnt.
