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!

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.
