Don’t miss out on a fabulous evening of fashion, fun and inspiration from designer TRINA TURK! Proceeds benefit educational programs at The Mint Museum.


Jodianne Johnson and Windy O’Connor are planning an amazing evening for the Mint Museum Auxiliary with the renowned fashion designer Trina Turk. Trina Turk is both inspired by and represents the lifestyle of California: optimistic, progressive, accessible, effortless, colorful, and confident. Her ready-to-wear, accessory, and home collections are influenced by her love of vintage apparel, jewelry, and accessories from the ’60s and ’70s, modernist and graphic arts, and mid-century modern architecture. Turk is widely known for her use of dynamic colors and signature prints, from bright florals to bold graphics to vintage inspired jacquards. The talented Ms. Turk will guide our members through her Mid Century Modern Musings and its influence on her designs. After the lecture, guests will enjoy a fashion show and live auction.

Due to increased demand, a limited number of tickets have been released for additional seating. Please contact Anne Poole at 704-376-2224 or for availability. Tickets are $100 for Mint Museum Auxiliary members and $110 for Guests. For more information and to download the invitation, please see Proceeds from the event benefit The Mint Museum. Parking is available in the Duke Energy building.
