Steve Harvey, renowned comedian, author, and radio and television host, put
three moms to the test to design a dress for his fashion women’s collection
that works for the office and beyond. To highlight the collection’s focus on
offering modern women comfortable yet stylish outfits that fit their active
lifestyles, the moms were challenged to create a day-to-night transitional
look in a woman’s size 4 and 16.

Ganier, a mother of three who graduated from the International Academy of
Design & Technology in Chicago and now owns her own clothing design company
called Ganier Designs, described her piece as “an alternative corporate look.”
Her knee-length, cream-colored dress is appropriate for formal office
settings, while the draped neckline paired with added accessories can easily
transition it into an exciting outfit for a night out.

Ganier’s dress will be sold online and at K&G stores in women’s sizes small –
3x for $49.99.

Harvey’s daughter, Karli Harvey, who is also the Creative Director of the
Steve Harvey Women’s Collection carried exclusively at K&G stores, joined Mary
Beth Blake, Executive Vice President at Men’s Wearhouse, Inc., to pick the
challenge winner.

“Elysia’s dress was beautifully designed to be flattering and comfortable for
professional women of all sizes, which complements the offerings in our
exclusive Steve Harvey Women’s Collection,” Blake said. “K&G offers women
affordable fashion that makes them look and feel great, and the Designing Moms
Challenge allowed us to celebrate our customers’ amazing talents while
offering our shoppers a unique benefit — a dress created for real women, by a
real woman.”

To learn more about the inspiration behind the dress, watch the interview with
Ganier on the K&G Fashion Superstore Facebook page. Ganier will also appear on
the Steve Harvey Show on March 22, where Karli Harvey will interview her and
reveal her design on the air. For additional information and to purchase the
