Nathaniel Handfield, a native of Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos Islands, quietly marked his fifth anniversary as a designer of exclusive custom-made wardrobes for Britain’s wealthiest and most prominent businessmen. Since 2015, Nathaniel only meets with clients who have first made private appointments, an approach that takes luxury fashion buying to a new level of exclusivity.
“Many aspiring fashion designers desire to be world famous and dream of having their collections admired by millions on a runway, this is not the way I work,” said Nathaniel. “My clientele wants discretion and exclusive focus on their unique fashion needs.” Nathaniel neither holds fashion shows nor presents himself to the fashion press. He has served as a private tailor, image strategist, style coach and executive protection (EP) agent to ultra-high net worth individuals in England, Scotland, Canada, Turks & Caicos, Saudi Arabia, and the United States .
Nathaniel assures his clients privacy with a signed confidentiality agreement. He uses his innate sense of style to help them look and feel the very best. As a certified professional, Nathaniel has a proven ability to enable his clients to present themselves in the best manner. He achieves this goal through a holistic approach. Nathaniel works from the inside out, taking time to understand his client’s needs. He helps them develop a personal style that reflects their ambitions and goals and then handcrafts custom wardrobes using their body measurement, style preferences and body posture.
The services also involve coaching clients on how to dress for various occasions. Nathaniel helps clients with enclothed cognition, international protocol and how to use nonverbal communication to their advantage. “Style is more than the way you look,” explained Nathaniel. “It’s your personal brand, and your personal business card. It reflects who you are, your attitude, and your personality. The most powerful style is you at your very best.”
Nathaniel further commented that the fashion industry is over saturated with mass quantities of ready-to-wear standard sized garments. As a result, many business professionals have difficulties acquiring properly fitting apparel, especially gentlemen with body proportion issues.“I provide my clients the comfort of having perfectly fitting wardrobes, handcrafted exactly the way they like it regardless of their body size, height or posture. Enhancing the personal appearance, self confidence and self-esteem of my clients is at the heart of everything I do,” said Nathaniel.
