Calling all dragonfly lovers! Look at this beautiful new coat from Sarah Nolan. She's painted a whole squadron of dragonflies in gold, silver, white and black on the luscious burgundy silk background for an elegant yet lighthearted effect. Altering the angles and sizes of the dragonfly figures, and breaking some of them up across the front opening gives a playfulness to the composition.
Wear Dragonfly Squadron over a column of basic black with gold jewelry for a dressy event, or over a white shell and skinny jeans with chunky silver jewelry for a daytime occasion.

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.”
