Question Is this possible to re-create in wood and how?

I am in need of a garment rack, made of wood, that can be fully dis-assembled for transport. Ideally it would be something like the one in the link below to minimize floor space.

4 way hi capacity all rectangular rack with 4 straight 22" rectangular arms - 1 per box - Chrome, 4 Way Garment Racks - Achieve Display

I do 18th century trade fairs and need something that can hold clothing, be taken down and packed in an suv with minimal space being used both in the suv when taken down and in my trade space when set up.

Any help would be very appreciated!

I Didn't bother to work out a way to do this is in wood, but it could be easily made with 1-1/2" or 2" PVC pipe.

Using tees and ells, the pieces would be force fitted together instead of glued.

I've made similar racks this way to use with additional lighting at various job sites...

Very easy to knock apart for transport, but very stable when assembled

Could be done in wood and George's idea will work, too, Only problem with material other than steel is the sag factor, but that could be solved for pvc or wood with some creative engineering of bracing.
