One of my FAVORITE designers, Trina Turk, will be in town today speaking at the SF Design Center with the editor of California Home + Design magazine. I have long admired the graphic fabrics used in the Trina Turk line. Trina Turk launched her business in 1995, having learned to sew and design from an early age. Within the first year she had Barney”s New York, Fred Segal and Saks selling her clothing.
“Inspired by the multicultural mix, architecture, and landscape of Los Angeles and California, The Trina Turk Collection is full of the Season’s most casually sophisticated – and “must have” silhouettes. Trina’s philosophy is to create wearable, optimistic fashion that incorporates the best aspects of classic American sportswear.”
Trina Turk opened her flagship store in Palm Springs in 2002, to much excitement and fanfare, as the desert was a constant inspiration to her. A store in LA soon followed, and her NYC store opened in 2006 in the meatpacking district. Trina Turk residential opened right next door to the original clothing boutique in Palm Springs in 2008. In 2009 she introduced an indoor-outdoor fabric line with home furnishings manufacturer F. Schumacher
“Turk will sit down with California Home+Design Executive Editor Erin Feher for a frank, funny and insightful conversation about finding your style, building your brand and why California is still the land of risk-takers and tastemakers. Audience questions and participation are highly encouraged. “
