Here is our iconic coat transformed to a fingertip length jacket! Artist Sarah Nolan has painted her bold patterns of overlapping colorful grids in an energetic emblem on the upper back of the jacket, while the front shows a playful breaking up of her classic painted "frog" closure with extended and intersecting lines made of the frog shape.
This piece, begun as a special order for a business person client, has launched a new Singular Couture product: the hand painted silk jacket. Suitable for day use in a career setting by high powered professionals, yet dressey enough to transition to an evening event, the Singular jacket does it all.
Wear over basic black, or simple similar-hued top and pant, or over a sheath dress or top and narrow skirt... it all works! For the professional woman who wants to project an image of confidence and individuality, the new fingertip length jackets are the perfect item.Peacock blue dupioni silk shell
with apple green shantung silk lining. Sarah Nolan's Bio
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 NYC after college and began a different life working in tall gray buildings, wearing gray/blue/black 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 and 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 and to stitch and embroider paintings. I went to India to learn blockprinting and learned to paint on clothing.
While living in NYC, prior to attending a ladies' luncheon, I decided I was tired of wearing traditional dull-colored suits and made a brightly painted gold silk coat to wear. (See "Faberge" in our pictures.) Other attendees wanted to know where they could get one. 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.
