About

Hello, lovers of beauty!
My name is Autumn Adamme and I am the proprietress of Dark Garden Corsetry. I've been hand-crafting bespoke corsets and clothing since 1989. Perhaps you've visited my boutique, Dark Garden? In the heart of San Francisco, I employ nearly a dozen highly skilled artisans to create world class corsetry. And in April of 2019, I achieved my long held dream of opening a second boutique in New Orleans. Across both locations, our team makes up 17 compassionate and radically inclusive individuals. At Dark Garden, the perfect fit is where beauty & comfort converge – no matter your size.

Thank you so much for your patronage on Patreon!
Your rewards include access to exclusive content, such as:
  • my informative corset fact posts
  • behind-the-scenes peeks at our photoshoots
  • advance previews of upcoming collections
Your monthly contribution enables us to:
  • host community events for those who love corsets and dress-up
  • create beautiful showpieces for editorial photoshoots
  • innovate and refine construction techniques

The Godmother of Modern Corsetry

It's hard to believe there was a time before the wealth of knowledge that is the internet, but corsetmakers like myself in the 80s and early 90s had to reinvent the wheel when it came to figuring out how to construct and fit corsets. I'm both humbled and honored that my efforts earned me the nickname, "The Godmother of Modern Corsetry." When I was the keynote speaker at the 2014 Oxford Conference of Corsetry, I was amazed at the level of skill – and all the hard-won knowledge that is now a widespread given in the corsetmaking community. Truly, we've come so far.

Artist-Made
My team and I are devoted to continually elevating the craft and art of making corsets. Each member is an artist, and I am passionate about supporting not just domestic but local manufacturing. You can't get more local than this! If you visit our San Francisco flagship for a corset fitting, you'll find yourself in the same building where our corsets, accessories, and wedding gowns are designed and sewn.

Let us lace you up in luxury
Of course, just as important as our amazing team are our wonderful fans and clients. San Francisco's retail landscape is particularly troubled, but we are devoted to staying open to serve you with enthusiasm and warmth. Let Dark Garden be your fairy godmother. Come play dress up for the afternoon. Be welcomed with open arms, no matter your gender, age, size, or kink. Of course, for those who can't make it to San Francisco or New Orleans, we have a websiteInstagram, and now, this Patreon where we look forward to staying in touch with you. 

Love,
Autumn
