The 25-year-old hatter Nasir Mazhar is obsesses by the history of headwear and sculptural forms. He has worked with hairdressing, training with Vidal Sassoon. During his training he was frustrated with the limitations of hair. He wanted to create more defined shapes, that is not possible with hair. His designs shortly became headwear.
His pieces are architectural interventions. According to Nasir, every modern hat you see comes from the past. For the past years he has been working as a theatrical hatter with Mark Wheeler. Gaga has worn his pieces in many of her videos, among them Poker Face and Alejandro.
