Designer Trina Turk
A genuine California local, Trina Turk is inspired by the Golden State’s multicultural mix, creativity, craftsmanship, architecture, and landscape — a synergy that permeates her contemporary, colorful aesthetic. Infused with bold signature prints and dynamic hues unique to each collection, Trina’s modern and optimistic outlook melds the best of classic American design with a California confidence, incorporating beautiful materials and impeccable quality for effortless élan and carefree glamour.
Founded in 1995 by Trina and her late husband, photographer Jonathan Skow, as a women’s contemporary line, Trina Turk has evolved into a print- and color-driven lifestyle brand, celebrating California style with 11 annual collections of chic women’s ready-to-wear and accessories, plus swimwear, jewelry, eyewear, a Mr Turk menswear line, and residential textiles.
The Mr Turk menswear line conveys a dapper California style and carries on the brand’s affection for vibrant color and print. Men who want to make a sartorial statement can now select from among jackets, shirts, pants, shorts, swimwear, ties, and bowties.
The Trina Turk brand’s corporate headquarters, design, and production are located in Alhambra, CA, east of downtown Los Angeles. The first retail store opened in Palm Springs in 2002, and the brand has since expanded to 13 boutiques. Trina Turk signature boutiques are located in Burlingame, Dallas’ Highland Park Village, Houston Galleria, and Manhattan Beach. Trina Turk | Mr Turk boutiques are located in Atlanta’s Phipps Plaza, Charlotte, Honolulu, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Palm Springs and Palm Desert, and Scottsdale’s Fashion Square.
