Take a look at the lovely, rich colors on this new one from Sarah Nolan! The shimmery turquoise blue next to the soft yellow gold is a warm and attractive combination, and flattering to most skin tones. Nolan sets off this pairing with crossing diagonal splashes of red, navy, yellow and green, creating a great patterning effect. "Crossroads" has just enough paint to look artful and elegant, is understated to let the beautiful fabric shine.
Our fingertip jacket length is perfect for day into evening wear. With office dress pants or a slim skirt and white blouse it's a wonderful professional look that goes right into a dinner out or special event. Imagine "Crossroads" with a necklace of chunky turquoise beads... wow!
- Turquoise dupioni silk shell
- Yellow gold shantung silk lining.
Sarah Nolan's Bio
Santa Fe, New Mexico
“I was born in Mississippi and had a childhood that included eating fried chicken (yum!), fishing for bass, and swinging on wisteria vines.”
“I Moved to New York City after college and began a different life working in tall gray buildings, wearing gray/black/blue clothes and getting an MBA at night at NYU. I spent endless hours at a top consulting firm restructuring really big companies.”
“The next phase of my career began as a corporate innovator/rejuvenator and CEO. I restructured two large financial subsidiaries and three very small internet companies. Then I stopped and became a consultant for non-profit organizations.”
One day, pneumonia caught me and I thought I would die. When I got better I began to paint seven days a week to learn how to make art. I learned to paint on non-traditional fabrics with objects in addition to paintbrushes. I went to India to learn wood block printing and to paint clothing.”
“While living in New York City, prior to attending a women’s luncheon, I decided I was tired of wearing traditional dull-colored suits and made a brightly painted silk coat to wear. Other attendees wanted to know where they could get one, and Singular Couture was born.”
I love painting original pieces of clothing. Now I have the additional fun of finding talented artists to add to our roster of artists who paint pieces for Singular Couture.”
