Here's another playful example of our new combination of fabric patterns: thin stripe outer with tiny checked inner! How fun is that? And as if that were not enough, artist Sarah Nolan takes it a step further with an overall composition of scritched-in "X's" in yellow, silver, turquoise and orange paint, with bold curved arcs of lime green on the back. The end result is a riot of color and pattern that somehow manages to not go over the top!
Like many of Nolan's designs, this one is versatile for casual or dressy wear. Pair it with a simple column of black with brightly colored jewelry for evening, or over a magenta tee and your favorite jeans for a lunch with friends. You'll cause a "Tizzy" wherever you go!Fuschia and black pin strip shantung silk shell

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.
