In magazines, on the net, out in the shops, one cannot help but notice Trina Turk. We ourselves have featured clothing by her in Fashion Geometry and on Mischa Barton in the OC Fashion Finale. I'm sure that many of you, like me, have wondered just WHO and WHAT this brand is all about. And so I went online and did some research. Here's what I've gathered:
Trina Turk is a west coast native who was named California Designer of the Year in 1998. She started out designing jeans for Brittania and juniors for OP, but after years of hard work her brand is now sold in Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth to name a few in addition to two seperate stores in Palm Springs and LA. Influenced by her Japanese mother, her designs incorporates simple Asian elegance and lots of prints, adding a contemporary twist on lady chic. And we can definitely see this in the pictures above, the blazer and the jacet. . . . Here are some more of her designs:
Is she not simple GENIUS?? Are these not the most BEEEEAUTIFUL things ever?? It is no wonder that so many celebrities have been seen in Trina Turk, including Halle Berry, Gwen Stefani, Kate Moss, Natalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Anniston . . . and the list goes on.
And should you live in or pass by Palm Spring or . . . ..
. . . .LA you simply MUST go visit the store. The interior designing of Trina Turk stores are just too cool for words! Learn more about Trina Turk at her website (which btw is absolutely fabulous containing all the pictures and information that you'll ever need).
