LOS ANGELES — After 13 years in the fashion business, contemporary designer Trina Turk is finally ready for a growth spurt.
Flush with an investment from private equity firm KarpReilly LLC, Turk is adding two shops in Newport Beach and Burlingame, Calif., to her string of five stores stretching from Palm Springs, Calif., to New York. She’s also moved her vivid signature prints from her classic sportswear to plush pillows, sleek Lucite chairs and other home furnishings. In the spring, she’ll expand to the pool through a collaboration with F. Schumacher & Co. to produce outdoor upholstery fabrics that are resistant to fading, water and stains. Also on the agenda is a plan to wholesale the six-year-old men’s line, which is sold only in her namesake stores, as a subbrand called Mr. Turk.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
