What a fun and vibrant new coat from Sarah Nolan! Can you tell she paints to dance music (and dances while doing so, brush in hand!) She's painted richly layered, multi-colored dots in a massed, upward moving design on the back like a burst of confetti. The front has an breezier, gently floating effect. The champagne bubbly look gives the coat a wonderful, festive feel for your next special event. Just looking at this piece gives you a lift, imagine what wearing it feels like!
Over a column of black with a string of pearls you'll turn heads when you step out on "Spot On." Or dress it down over a crisp white blouse and black slacks for daytime wear.
Fuschia shantung silk shell.
Black shantung silk lining.
Sarah Nolan's Bio
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.”
