This Aug. 8, 2013 publicity photo provided by courtesy of Maria Pinto shows fashion designer Maria Pinto, in Chicago. Pinto, famous for dressing first lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey, is back with a new, more affordable collection that she plans to launch with the help of an online funding campaign three years after a poor economy forced her to close her namesake Chicago boutique. Pinto is trying to raise $250,000 within 45 days for her M2057 line when it goes live on the Kickstarter crowd-funding website this weekend. (A Photo/Courtesy Maria Pinto, Brian Kuhlmann) less
