Menswear

 Dark Garden does menswear too! Manly corsets? Hell yeah. We will get a chance to show them off at the June 1st Friday Nights at the DeYoung with a whole evening to celebrate San Francisco dandies. Come see a menswear fashion show, see the Gaultier exhibit (with an exhibit ticket), drink, flirt and be merry.
