Watch Nick Fouquet’s Flame-Treated Hatmaking Masterclass

The Los Angeles artist unveils his creative process.

Born in New York, brought up in France and now based in Los Angeles, Nick Fouquet’s far-flung trips to Patagonia, Australia and across Europe inspired his high-end hatmaking business that specialises in unconventional shapes.
