Love What You Do: Nick Fouquet

Here at Free People we are endlessly inspired by people who have a dream and set out to make it a reality. We’re taking our Love Stories series in a new direction, to explore the things that move people…and what makes them love what they do. For this edition, we visit hat maker Nick Fouquet in Venice, CA. Step inside his studio, where he creates one-of-a-kind hats, each custom made with a specific person in mind so that the hat is more than just a hat – it’s a reflection of its owner’s personality and personal aesthetic.
