Maria Pinto M2057

For those who have missed Maria Pinto, the Chicago-based designer, once a mainstay in Mrs. O's wardrobe, she is back! Pinto recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund her new line M2057, described as "beautiful, versatile, affordable womenswear inspired by urban architecture and design." Many will recall that Pinto closed her Chicago business in February 2010, covered here. You can learn more about the Kickstarter campaign here.

It’s really great that she’s back and I wish her all the best with her new designs. They offer flexibility – from office to occasions after work which will save time and shopping - also change the look by adding a different shoe, necklace, blazer etc. I like the Circle Scarf, Isabella and GIA dress.

Beautiful dress. Mrs. O is wearing this same color in a picture from the USO today!

Best of luck to Ms Pinto!!! Hope it works out this go around. Clothes made right here in America, win-win!!! The Sophia and Isabella dresses are my favorites, probably because Mrs Obama would totally rock them!!!

So excited to see Maria Pinto designing again. As a Chicagoan, i'd like to see her succeed, and continue designing beautiful collections! Hopefully the First Lady will notice and will go on Kickstarter like I did.
