The event promises an immersive experience, where guests can witness the fusion of fashion and architectural splendor at the legendary Frank Sinatra Twin Palms Estate.

Against the backdrop of the estate’s iconic piano-shaped pool, thirty new fashions will grace the runway, showcasing Trina Turk’s dynamic designs inspired by California’s effortless chic.

In addition to the fashion extravaganza, Modernism Week attendees will be treated to a captivating dialogue between Trina Turk and Palm Springs style icon Nelda Linsk. The event, titled “Palm Springs Fashion, Then & Now: Trina Turk and Nelda Linsk in Conversation,” delves into the rich tapestry of Palm Springs fashion history. From glamorous fashion shows hosted by luminaries like Emilio Pucci to Trina Turk’s pioneering retail venture in the Uptown Design District, the conversation promises to be both enlightening and entertaining.

Nelda Linsk’s anecdotes of hosting Emilio Pucci fashion shows in the 1960s and her enduring friendship with photographer Slim Aarons offer a glimpse into the golden era of Palm Springs glamour. Meanwhile, Trina Turk reflects on her journey from founding her eponymous fashion label in 1995 to becoming a beacon of California cool, celebrated for her dynamic color palettes and dazzling prints.

Since its inception in 1995 by Trina and her late husband, Jonathan Skow, the brand has evolved into a print and color-driven lifestyle brand, offering women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, swimwear, eyewear, menswear under the label Mr Turk, and residential goods.

Trina Turk’s design ethos combines bold signature prints, dynamic hues, and impeccable quality, blending classic American design with California confidence. With headquarters in Alhambra, CA, the brand’s retail presence spans nationwide, with boutiques in Palm Springs, Atlanta, Dallas, Naples, and Burlingame, among others.
