Designs by American Trina Turk to be featured in 4th annual runway event
Houston trendsetters and fashionphiles will gather on Friday, Nov. 21 for A Legacy of Style, a sparkling winter-wonderland runway show featuring looks from American designer Trina Turk. The popular luncheon is in its 4th year raising money for the Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF), an institution that has issued more than $8 million in grants and scholarships in Houston’s Spring Branch Independent School District since 1993.
Fittingly, California-based Turk is expanding her luxury retail brand in Houston with a new Galleria boutique opening in early November. Turk’s “Winter Luxe” collection will be featured on Nov. 21 and worn by model-like volunteers with an enthusiasm for fashion and a love for Spring Branch. Co-chairs Debbie Slack and Susan Griffin expect a sell-out.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Trina Turk for this year’s fashion show,” said Slack, a former buyer for Tootsies and a longtime resident of Spring Branch. “Her style is very appealing, fresh, modern and glamorous. I think this is a great fit for Houston women, and I can’t wait to see all of the looks!”
“It’s a lot of fun for the audience to see familiar faces on the runway,” said Griffin, another Spring Branch parent. “The SBISD alumni and employees personify the strong legacy and loyalty we enjoy in the school district.”
