DESIGNER ANNOUNCEMENT – DARK GARDEN CORSETRY!

We are ecstatic to announce that we will indeed be having a full scale runway fashion show at the Saturday main event of Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2024! Our first designer announcement is DARK GARDEN CORSETRY!

History:
Based out of San Francisco and New Orleans, Dark Garden Corsetry is the work of executive creative director Autumn Adamme. Initially began selling her historically-inspired designs to friends and colleagues in 1989. In 1993, Autumn realized her true calling and began focusing on corsetry, working with clients ranging from modern brides to San Francisco’s famous court of queers. Options were slim at that time and Autumn knew that if she wanted comfortable and high-quality corsetry, she would have to make it herself!

Supporting uncommon beauty is DGC’s goal. That means appreciating the beauty in every single client they meet, and working with them to cultivate a style that embraces your best self. Every size, every gender, every shape, every aesthetic is welcome in their boutique. What they don’t have in stock, they can make. They pride themselves on the high degree of customization of fit and style they offer in their Made-to-Order corsets, and their Bespoke corsetry and Couture ensembles provide the utmost in custom fit and design.

They have had several landmark moments since 1989! After a few moves, they settled into their current location on Linden Street in 1997. In 2001, the standard fit collection launched, and it remains the only corset line based on a true average of modern bodies. They welcomed Kalico Delafay to our design team in 2010 with her signature Dollymop silhouette.

Dita Von Teese commissioned her first Dark Garden corset in 1996, and it was in a Dark Garden corset that she graced the cover of Playboy in 2002, 2015 and 2016 saw a cross-continental cameo collaboration with the famed Mister Pearl.

Their dedication to quality is possible thanks to their unique on-site production process. Step behind the curtains of their boutique and you’ll find their workroom, humming with the activity of our expert production team. This setup allows them the flexibility of an independent corsetiere with the reliability of full-scale manufacturing. They employ a team of five cutters, stitchers, and drafters who work closely together to fulfill Autumn’s visions of small-batch corsetry. Autumn remains intimately involved in the process of fitting bespoke corsets as well as prototyping new designs and construction techniques.

Model Submissions :
Dark Garden Corsetry will be accepting model submissions to fill a limited number of spots for their showcase. POC / female / male / non-binary / trans and every type of body welcome. If interested, please send an email to : events@darkgarden.com

Please be sure to include at least one photo of your current look, any relevant model, performer or runway experience, and any links to Facebook or Instagram accounts.

THANK YOU!

The last few trucks have been unloaded, all gear has been returned, and other than a few select kinksters who have stayed in Vancouver the extra week to experience the upcoming Gay Pride Weekend, all our international traveller fetish friends have returned home, drawing an official close to Vancouver Fetish Weekend 2023, by FAR the biggest one yet!

There’s already a sneak peek quick picks photo gallery up on the VFW website! Go check it out –> HERE

A GIGANTIC thank you to everyone who attended and brought your boundless creativity, energy and sexy self-expression to all the events! Without you, there is no festival! While the attendance grew about 20% bigger this year in terms of overall numbers, it absolutely felt like it grew by leaps and bounds way above that in terms of how hard everyone BROUGHT IT! Especial thank you to the rubber community who were a major force all weekend!

Thank you to our amazing performers and DJs! There were so many moments at all of the events that had all of our jaws dropping and causing the hugest roars from the audience!

Thank you to all the staff and venues who welcomed us in, loved every moment of having us there, and were so accommodating to all our crazy needs and requests for all the unique requirements that events like ours need to get the vibe just right.

Thank you to all our hard working volunteers and show staff who were there many hours before doors opened at every event, and also there hours afterwards! Not to mention our admissions team, dress code, dungeon monitors and hosts and consent staff, all of whom are the backbone of being able to keep our events a 100% immersive kink environment, as well as a safe & sane place to play.

Can you believe next year is the Vancouver Fetish Weekend 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY? We are expecting a HUGE jump in attendance! We will be making tickets and hotel bookings available MUCH earlier this year, to facilitate everyone making plans further out, so please keep an eye out for news of when they go live!

The event listings on Facebook and Fetlife are already up! Make sure to click on GOING, and to sign up to the Newsletter at the VFW website, to get notice of tickets and hotels the second it happens!
