Trina Turk

Fashion Designer

Los Angeles

A California girl through and through, fashion designer Trina Turk has infused the industry with her signature look — colorful prints, mod design, carefree glamour — since she started her brand in 1995. Turk opened her first retail boutique in Palm Springs in 2002; her label has expanded to seven stores around the country and is also carried by upscale department stores. Her ready-to-wear line is now just one part of her business — the Trina Turk brand has grown to include accessories, home goods, stationery and a revamped men’s collection. Turk’s passion for travel, sunny optimism and devotion to ’60s and ’70s style fuels her breezy (but successful) approach to design.
