Trina Turk NYFW Spring 15
LA’s downtown Flower Market was the inspiration behind the collaborative Trina Turk & Mr. Turk show this season. Vibrant floral prints, graphic stripes and geometric jacquard danced across easy chic silhouettes.
What made the show completely unique and well, darn right fun was the decision to allow the models to keep their phones while they stood on in front of the crowd. Trina and Jonathan discussed how they “decided not to fight it”. They embraced the fact that we’re all completely attached to our phones and encouraged the models and show goers to take sefies together and to Instagram the experience. The whole experience was light and fun. It gave the crowd the opportunity to interact with the show and the clothes in a whole new way. Well done Trina and Jonathan, well done.

A fun little note about the show, one of my favorite fashion illustrators, Blair Breitenstein, was at the show sketching the models (see 3rd to last image). You absolutely must check out her portfolio and shop online, it’s gorgeous and to boot she was super sweet and personable.
