BEING USEFUL: Marie Gray, co-founder and current consultant for St. John, has heard more than a few compelling tales from women sharing their memorable St. John-clad moments. Gray, who made an appearance at Neiman Marcus in both Chicago and suburban Oak Brook Friday said women have told her about getting married in the iconic knit brand or attending high-profile functions at the White House, but the most surprising story involved a woman who administered CPR and saved a man’s life while wearing her favorite St. John suit. “That was an all-time first,” said Gray, who noted women also use the opportunity to share what’s missing from the line. In Chicago, they want boot-length skirts to battle the elements, said Gray, who said her role with the company, like that of her daughter Kelly, is supportive in nature. “We’re there just to help in any way we can,” she said. “Some days it’s on the technical level, some days it’s personal appearances.”
