We dare say that just a few months ago, not too many people had any idea who Maria Pinto is. But then everybody started getting bombarded with press releases about Michelle Obama's dresses of choice, and the designer name was always (except for the recent Thakoon) the same - Maria Pinto, a relatively unknown designer based out of Chicago, despite being in the business since the 90's and being sold at places like Saks and Takashimaya. But now it seems Maria's career is on an upswing - she's opening her first showroom in New York. Clearly, we're all just a few weeks away from receiving Spring 09 lookbooks - but the real question remains: Is it weird to hold a show at Fashion Week if your line's been around for years?
