MARIA PINTO’S NEXT STEP: After shuttering her store and design business last March, Chicago designer Maria Pinto, who gained national recognition for dressing First Lady Michelle Obama on the campaign trial, has reemerged as the new creative director for women’s fashions for Mark Shale, a men’s and women’s specialty store with three locations in the Chicago area.
