it's not real pretty, but i've seen tubular metal clothes racks, such as you might use to store out-of-season clothing. for "pretty," how about looking for clothing stores that are going out of business and selling their display pieces? there are companies (both online and off) that sell display fixtures for every type of business around. if you live near a large city, look in the phone book, or if you have access to the "business yellow pages" that would be even better! (or google for "display fixtures")

good luck at your show!

PrairiePrimitives is my eBay ID. I tried to put a link here, but it didn't work. Sad

Do you want something traditional or kind of crazy?  What is your space like, are you near a wall?

I bought clothing racks from a store that was going out of business. 

If you just want to display one or two garments at the back of your booth, then you can make a hall tree sort of rack (or just buy a hall tree), and hang one item at a time from the peg in the upright pole.  You can make the 'hall tree' from pvc or from lumber--just add 4 legs (or large shelf brackets) radiating out at the base for stability.

Or do what another booth did at my last show.  They took a cut down sheet of plywood, and added the shelf brackets to the base for legs.  Cover plywood with fabric or paint it.  Add coat hooks where you want to hang your items.  Then you just pick it up and go when you pack up.  This will give you a flat display wall to hang individual items at the back of your booth.

I have a duct-tape dummy that I made with the help of a friend of my bust.  I'm setting up with clothes at a show soon, and I'm planning on putting a shirt on that dummy on the table and then setting up my garment rack next to the table.
