Nick Fouquet was born in New York City, then lived in southwestern France, Palm Beach, Florida, Australia, New York City, and Colorado. Nick Fouquet is a hat maker who has visited many places, such as Patagonia, Nepal, Morocco, New Zealand, Thailand, Brazil ve Peru and finally decided to live in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California.
Becoming a hat maker, whose numbers waning every day, wasn't a career plan that Nick Fouquet drew up in high school or college. After graduation, he stepped into the fashion world and decided that he should be on the design side, not being in front of the camera. He believed that hats are not a grandfather's accessory and could reinterpret them with innovative designs, and he did research and training in hat making. The adventure, which started in a garage, now continues in his studio in Venice Beach.
Nick Fouquet Hats reflect the designer's spirit and creativity. Nick Fouquet is inspired by his travels, art, love, family, and personal experiences. Tom Sawyer, Keith Richards, and his Dad's style are also other inspirations. The match stick on the hat is his signature.
The Nick Fouquet Brand combines bohemian elements and American lifestyle with high-quality craftsmanship, creating luxury handmade hats. Nick Fouquet makes his hats with a production approach that does not compromise on quality. He makes his hats by using beaver fur felt, which is sustainably harvested. Luxury, individuality, sustainability, and style are indispensable for Nick Fouquet.
At the 2014 Grammys, Pharrell Williams and Madonna wore hats designed by Nick Fouquet during their performance, and this was the beginning of the new era for the Nick Fouquet Hats. It brought global recognition to the brand.
