Nigel Waymouth was born in India in 1941 but his early childhood was spent in Argentina. In 1954 he moved to England, where he completed his education at University College London.
In February 1966 he launched the now legendary King’s Road boutique, Granny Takes a Trip, for which he designed clothes as well as the regularly changing shopfronts that were it’s signature feature. At the same time Nigel also began a graphic design partnership, Hapshash & The Coloured Coat, whose iconic psychedelic posters helped to define the aesthetic of the era. They are now part of the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and are often featured prominently in the museum’s retrospective exhibitions.
