The vast majority of women know the disappointment and embarrassment that comes with trying on clothing that just doesn’t quite fit right. Every one of us has a different body shape and no two fashion labels seem to have the same sizing. You might be a size 8 in one store and a 12 in another. This discomfort is what drives Nathan’s Boutique owner, Sue Hargreaves. She is emphatic: “never underestimate the power of a well-made dress”.
Classic style, comfort and quality are the hallmarks of Sue’s label, Natural Closet. Made from natural fabrics and fibres to suit the sultry Queensland climate, Natural Closet garments are designed to flatter. The locally-made clothing is durable, long lasting, easy care – and versatile. In a Natural Closet outfit you can don some sneakers or sandals for an easy weekend vibe or elevate your look with a little bit of lippy and bling.
The Natural Closet label is available exclusively at Nathan’s Boutique, Bundaberg’s longest-serving fashion store. “Ladies can buy Natural Closet garments off the rack in sizes extra small to two XL, or order our designs specially made-to-measure,” Sue said. “We only make a small number of each line to ensure our customers’ wardrobes are as unique as they are.
“Carole Cronin, Tess Berghofer and I can also custom create clothing to your perfect fit. Put simply – the team at Nathan’s Boutique is committed to making women feel naturally fabulous at any age, shape or size.”
Nathan’s Boutique also proudly stock modern New Zealand label, FOIL. “Like Natural Closet, the FOIL brand encompasses classic design with a relaxed fashion edge,” Sue said. “Comfort and fit are the label’s key focus, offering total looks that flatter from day to night.”
