Granny Takes a Trip offered a very different version of fashion. It opened in the World's End in 1965 with John Pearse, Nigel Waymouth and Sheila Cohen as owners. Behind a series of surreal temporary shop fronts, they promoted an exclusive and mysterious 'look' based around concepts of nostalgia and psychedelia. Much of it appeared to come out of a dressing-up box.
