With a California dapper style, Mr Turk is designed for men who want to make a statement with their wardrobe. Simple silhouettes in unique patterns, textures and colors are the hallmark of the brand. The Mr Turk customer isn’t afraid to stand out.
Mr Turk is inspired by California’s cocktail culture and indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The collections are lively and confident, with vintage-inspired styling, prints, colors, and fabrications. Each delivery is a celebration of the best of ‘60s and ‘70s styling reworked for the modern man. The looks merge classic California style with an international sophistication and include patterned pants and blazers, printed shirts, textured knit polos as well as swimwear, from board shorts to briefs.
The Mr Turk line is designed by Jonathan Skow, noted photographer and stylist and Trina Turk’s husband.

Before Christina Cornwell became a designer she realized she had a connection with fashion. She would find herself observing the way people dressed and would ask herself why they dressed in that particular way. Christina would also find herself deconstructing clothes to discover how each garment worked. It was then when it hit her that she had a love for more than just clothing she had a love for fashion and design. As a designer, Christina wants to reach out to young women and show them that being pretty is not just about their bodies, but rather about how they present themselves. Christina believes that in today’s society girls seem to confuse sexy with pretty and she wishes to help correct that misconception through her designs. Pretty Lady Apparel is all about making young women redefine pretty, as well as feel pretty, and be pretty. Christina graduated from the Art Institute of Tucson with a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design.
The Pretty Lady Spring 2016 Poise collection was inspired by every woman’s fantasy of having a perfect spring-filled day.

This day will be full of poise, fun, laughter, excitement, and fulfillment. Pretty Lady Apparel is all about giving women a chance to make positive choices through clothing and this collection offers graceful and elegant bearing in not only one person but in every person.
