Trina Turk
I hope I didn't miss any existing threads on Trina Turk... quite frankly, I'm surprised nothing is out there... She has some very interesting pieces. Some very carefree, some vibrant, most bohemian-inspired... just love a lot of her collection. A few examples, all from trinaturk.com:

True ppl it is very, very commercial (and overpriced), but I love her and have been hooked for a couple of years b/c of her use of colors and prints. Her actual home ain't so cute, but her stores are.

I looooooooooooooove Trina Turk. She is my favorite designer because she makes her clothes wearable and affordable for the average working woman. I love how she knows how to design beautiful clothes that don't look like they were cut out of a pattern or fabrics that are boring. It's the right mix of pretty and interesting.

Designer Bio: Trina Turk Simple, elegant designs with a splash of modernist chic are at the core of Trina Turk's clothing line. The designer enjoyed the optimism of the '60s and '70s when it was all about Tang and Art Deco, and in the '80s she naturally progressed into new wave fashion. This influence led to a signature look that is classic, clean, modern, and simple for anyone to wear. In every piece she creates, Trina Turk incorporates all the basics with just enough creativity to give an air of the exotic.

The clothes do nothing to me in those pictures, but I have a feeling that they'd look good if seen on someone.

Never heard of her either.
