This ground-breaking display, the first of its kind in a British museum, will feature 16 garments from the collection of Peter Farrer. Born in 1926, Peter has been cross-dressing since he was 14. The display will include highlights from his historic and modern collection of cross-dressing clothes. Peter’s interest in women’s period costume has led him to collect extensively and he now has a huge number of garments, particularly evening dresses made between the 1930s and the 1980s. He is especially interested in dresses made from taffeta, a crisp lightweight fabric that makes a distinctive rustle when the wearer moves. He has had a wardrobe of taffeta dresses made that he can wear at home, created for him by the Brighton-based dressmaker Sandi Hall, owner of the Kentucky Woman Clothing Company.
