A genuine California local,Trina Turk Founded in 1995 by Trina and her husband, photographer Jonathan Skow, as a women’s contemporary clothing line, Trina Turk has evolved into an iconic lifestyle brand, celebrating California style with eleven annual collections of chic women’s ready-to-wear and accessories, including jewelry, handbags, eyewear and footwear, plus swimwear, activewear, a Mr Turk menswear line, and residential décor and textiles.
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 the effortless elan and carefree glamour. Men who want to make a sartorial statement can now select from among jackets, shirts, pants, shorts, swimwear, ties and bowties designed by Jonathan Skow. A well-known stylist and photographer, Skow does all the photography for the Trina Turk and Mr Turk brands, and also designs the distinctive men’s line.
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 has since expanded to eleven signature boutiques: Palm Springs, New York, Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Burlingame, Miami, Dallas’ Highland Park Village, Atlanta’s Phipps Plaza, Manhattan Beach, Market Street in the Woodlands, Texas, the Houston Galleria and most recently, Honolulu. An outlet store operates in South Pasadena. Trina Turk is an active philanthropist, giving back in each of these local communities, as well as contributing generously to arts, education and preservation causes, among others.
