Founder and Creative Director, Trina Turk
A California local, Trina Turk is inspired by the Golden State’s multicultural mix, creativity, architecture, and landscape. Trina’s modern and optimistic outlook meld graphic pattern and vivid hues with a California confidence. Founded in 1995 by Trina and her late husband, photographer Jonathan Skow, as a women’s clothing collection, Trina Turk has evolved into a print and color driven lifestyle brand, now including swimwear, Mr Turk menswear, eyewear and residential soft goods.
The first retail store opened in Palm Springs in 2002 and has since expanded into 13 boutiques. Trina Turk is an active philanthropist, giving back in communities where the company has a retail presence, as well as contributing generously to arts, education and architectural preservation causes.
