When you can count Michelle Obama as a fan, your line is bound to enjoy success. Vogue brought our attention to designer Maria Pinto, who dressed the first lady for the 2008 Democratic National Convention in an attractive blue number (as well as many other looks). Although Pinto shuttered that brand in 2010, Vogue reports that she’s returned to the industry with a new line, and we have a feeling that Mrs. Obama will be a fan of the revamped version as well.
Dubbed M2057, the line is already generating buzz. “With M2057, it’s about this sort of modern, minimal approach,” Pinto told Vogue. “The goal is to provide what I like to call a blank canvas. I think there are ways to create a really beautiful object or dress that transcends a person’s personal style, so you might put it on with biker boots, and someone else might put it on with a pair of Manolos.”
