Here's a great new piece from Sarah Nolan: one of our new jacket length items. Splashy sunflowers are painted in black, yellow, and ultramarine blue flanking the front opening. on the shoulders, and randomly on the back. Flying hummingbirds are added for a playful touch. The blue and yellow on the fire engine red silk really makes a bold statement, but still has a pretty and lighthearted look.
The jackets are perfect for more casual wear: over a white blouse and your favorite skinny jeans and black boots it's a fun, fashion forward, street look. Or wear with a black top and skirt to work– add a strand of pearls for perfect day into evening attire.Red shantung silk shell with

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.”
