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 meld the best of classic American design with a California confidence, incorporating beautiful fabrications 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 eleven annual collections of chic women’s ready-to-wear and accessories, plus swimwear, eyewear, paper goods, a Mr Turk menswear collection, and residential goods.
Trina splits her time between mid-century architectural homes in Los Angeles’ creative enclave of Silver Lake, Palm Springs and the Sea Ranch, interspersed with travels up and down the coastline and around the world. A favorite pastime is vintage shopping and her educated collector’s eye discovers inspiration in any new destination, near or far.
The Trina Turk brand’s corporate headquarters and design studio are located in Alhambra, CA, east of downtown Los Angeles. The first retail store opened in Palm Springs in 2002 and has since expanded to eleven boutiques. TRINA TURK signature boutiques are located in Burlingame, Dallas’ Highland Park Village 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.
Trina Turk is an active philanthropist, giving back in each of these local communities, as well as contributing generously to arts, education, and architectural preservation causes, among others.
