Dark Garden Corsetry & Couture

The most experienced name in modern corsetry, Dark Garden has been handcrafting bespoke corsets and couture ensembles since 1989. Each corset is expertly sewn on-site in our San Francisco flagship boutique, and in 2019, we additionally opened our doors on Magazine Street in New Orleans for our second boutique.

You’ll love our standard fit corsets. They fit like no other, because they are based on decades of experience with custom work. We’ll always have time for you; our queue is never too full. But our offerings don't stop at our off-the-rack and custom corsets – our boutique is full of treasures, from lingerie and loungewear to beautiful evening wear, jewelry, and accessories. You can even consult with a designer about a custom ensemble.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Whether it’s leather, bespoke fit, men’s corsetry, or a traditional bridal gown you seek – we’ve done it all. Inclusivity is our watchword. All are welcome at Dark Garden.

It always has been and always will be our policy at Dark Garden to welcome all customers and to meet their needs to the best of our abilities. Our boutique staff are trained to fit the styles from our standard fit line on any body, and we can execute minor alterations on these styles to personalize them to your form. Whether you are looking to enhance a feminine physique or invest in a butch, shoulder-emphasizing, tailored vest corset, we promise your needs will be met with sensitivity and care. Through our bespoke corsets and couture, we love to build corsets that fully express our client's individuality.

"If you're looking for a non-traditional wedding dress salon, THIS IS IT! […] I looked like I had walked out of a fairytale! If you want to feel like a badass, taken care of, but don't want to walk the traditional white gown path, reach out and see what they can do for you." -Alysia G. via The Knot

Examples of my work

With over 30 years experience working with non-traditional couples, brides, and individuals, it’s no surprise that we’ve been featured on Offbeat Bride well over a dozen times! Check out our featured posts:

Our three designers, Autumn Adamme, Kalico Delafay, and Marianne Faulkner, all have their favored aesthetics, yet are very versatile, and love working closely with each client to meet their needs and style.
