Featured Collection: Featured Collection: Peggy Hoyt
December 2021 – April 2022

For the first time, the collection of garments recently installed in What We Wore all come from the same designer. Peggy Hoyt dressed America's elite of the 1920s, including Elizabeth Parke Firestone, wife of Harvey S. Firestone Jr., of the renowned tire family. The evening gowns on display are recognizable for their pastel colors, rhinestones, and handkerchief hems. A native of Michigan, Hoyt operated a salon in New York from which she offered her garments and hats, along with consultations for clients for custom pieces.
