I can tell you the exact day I became acquainted with Chicago fashion designer Maria Pinto. It was August 25, 2008 when Michelle Obama walked out on stage at the Democratic National Convention to speak about her husband Senator Barack Obama. The dress was feminine–yet professional. It was simple–yet structured. The color was not politically traditional….it was a striking teal color.
