Artist Sarah Nolan– always bold and daring in her Singular art coat designs– had her tongue firmly in her cheek when she created this outstanding new piece for the opening of opera season. With Voltaire’s famous quote from “Candide” in oversized lettering across the back, paired with a playful array of pop culture disaster icons, you’ll face the world with confidence and humor –the best of all possible tools for all possible situations!

Black shantung silk shell with a deep red silk lining. 

 For those who want to wink at the world and walk tall no matter what.

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.”
