Designer Trina Turk and her husband launched Trina Turk™ in 1995. At the tender age of 11, Turk knew she wanted to design clothing professionally. After graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in apparel design, Turk worked at several companies. She decided to launch her own business so she could design a line of contemporary clothing for women.
Her first clothing line was sold by Barney's New York, Fred Segal, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Since then, Trina Turk has grown into a multi-million dollar business; its wholesale sales topped $40 million in 2009.
Turk introduced swimwear to her collection in 2007 through a license with Apparel Ventures. The swimwear collection is highly influenced from the cocktail party culture as well as the lifestyle of the desert. The must-have silhouettes and vibrant colors represent the brand's style. From one-piece suits to tunics to two-piece bikinis, Trina Turk™'s swimwear brings out the fashionista in every woman.
