Here's another one of Sarah Nolan's fun patterned lining pieces where she paints design motifs to compliment the great plaid, dotted, and striped lining fabrics she found on her last buying trip to the silk warehouse in NYC. Instead of bright bold colors on this one, she painted muted, earth toned, stripes and bars on the soft gold silk intersecting at metallic gold "seals." The result looks a little like brass buttons. She carried the motif to the sleeve edges for a nice detail to add to the rolled cuffs.
The lining is a bold black and gold plaid that looks really great with the painted design on the outside when seen as the wearer walks or moves about in this coat. Its a great look dressed up over basic black with some chunky gold or silver jewelry, but can also be worn more casually over a white blouse and narrow leg black jeans with ballet flats.Gold 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.”
