Here at DrapeStyle we feature several designers. One of which is Trina Turk. Her fabrics are bright and bold, creative with a touch of retro.
Over the past two decades Trina’s modern and upbeat outlook has melded classic American design with a California confidence. What began as a women’s clothing collection has organically evolved into a many categories, with California-inspired patterns and pure color leading the way.
Trina Turk Fabric is by far one our favorite lines. Trina Turk is an amazing designer, partly because she knew at a fairly young age what she wanted to do when she grew up, followed her passions, and now she is extremely successful and has evolved what began as a women’s contemporary clothing line into a mini lifestyle brand. Trina studied apparel design at the University of Washington, leading her to work for various companies designing ready-to-wear women’s apparel.
Trina realized in 1995 that her resume wasn’t going to cut it if she wanted offers to design her own line of women’s clothing. Her next step was to launch her own company-selling everything from fabric to home accessories. And within the same year, her products were being sold in major department stores such as Barney’s New York and Saks Fifth Avenue. In 2009 her wholesale sales topped $40 million. Her successes lead to the opening of her own boutiques in major cities around the United States. Those boutiques and her online store are a huge success today.
Trina has drawn constant inspiration from the cocktail party and poolside lifestyle of the desert, which definitely lead to her line of indoor/outdoor fabrics for F Schumacher. Trina Turk Fabric for F Schumacher is filled to the brim with eye-popping colors and patterns that without a doubt will add excitement to any design. Many of which you can view here. The fabric quality is to die for, not to mention how cute it is! Whether you use the fabric for upholstery, drapery, or outdoor cushions, it is destined to be a great accent. Her geometric fabrics are a best-seller and have definitely landed her a place on our list of favorite designers!
