"Path" Jacket by Sarah Nolan
Here's another new jacket length item in luscious mango colored dupioni silk with gorgeous blue lining. What a stunning combo! Sarah Nolan has painted a simple yet striking pattern of grids in red and turquoise with dark blue horizontal bars that bridges the front opening of the jacket. The design is modified on the back into a less distinct grid column in turquoise red and blue.
This is the perfect day into evening item, transitioning from a great professional daytime look that projects confidence and originality to a stylish ensemble for an evening out after work. Wear with a strand of chunky turquoise beads to set off the azure blues.
Sarah Nolan's Bio
Mango dupioni silk shell with
peacock blue shantung silk lining.
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.”
