Dark Garden Couture Nouveau Collection for Spring Into Fall


On March 11, 2011 Dark Garden took to the runway in Amber Marie Bently's Spring Into Fall Fashion Show. Owner and designer, Autumn Adamme, worked with resident designers Kalico Delafay and Kali Lambson on seven new looks for the show.

Lauren: A melt in your mouth dress of champagne crepe-back satin beneath black silk chiffon stitched with French seams and delicate flounces and a deep back drape. The dress is constructed over our Alyscia corset in champagne crepe-back satin with a sheer lace back.
Harlow: An elegant 30’s starlet wrap dress in champagne silk crepe-back satin with bias skirt, shawl collar, and darted and gathered twist patterned sleeves. The dress exposes the bodice of our Adelaide corset in transparent nylon net and black French lace overlay with cups and spaghetti straps. Underneath is a pair of tap pants in champagne silk crepe-back satin with black lace hem and hand stitched black lace medallions.
The Beau Brummell has the appearance of a tailored waistcoat, with the function of a figure-shaping corset. Choose either a single- or double-breasted waistcoat front. Shown here in black wool damask stripe, silk gazar interlining, with poplin inner corset front and petersham detailing. Designed for men and also available for women. Shown with hand-tailored trousers. Want a 3-piece suit? We can work with your tailor in the selection of quality fabric.
Tallulah: A sophisticated cocktail dress of black silk duchess hand pleated over a sleek pencil skirt and our Sweetheart Victorian corset.
Grable: A romantic ballet skirt of black tulle paired with our Grable corset in champagne silk crepe-back satin, black silk duchess satin and black net lace. The corset (originally designed for Dita Von Tesse) has the styling of a 1940’s pin-up bathing suit with s-curve pieces that enhance the curves of any figure. Marlena: This dashing ensemble consists of jodhpurs in black wool sateen and silk duchess paired with our new George Sand corset with a collared double breasted vest front and cross back straps. Audrey: A delicious tiered ballet skirt paired with our Alyscia corset, both in champagne silk taffeta and black French lace and topped with a single layer black lace bolero jacket.

Made in San Francisco since 1989, all work from design concept through to garment completion is done at the Hayes Valley shop.
