The Beau Brummel Corset

The Beau Brummel Corset has the appearance of a tailored waistcoat, with the function of a figure shaping corset. It is a high backed corset with a vest front attached at the side and shoulder seams. It can be made with a double breasted or single breasted vest. Originally designed for the dashing Daniel Silviera, the Beau Brummel is now one of our most favored Custom Corsets. Come see a splendid collection on our dandies at Menwear Night as part of the Friday Nights at the DeYoung Museum June 1st from 5:30 to 8:45.
There will be a fashion show and many delicious Dark Garden Dandies modeling our Men's Corset Line.

Red Hot Mamas!

Remember when you dressed up in clothes from your mom's closet?
Now you can't keep her out of yours?
Bring a mom you love into Dark Garden on Mother's Day, May 13th, to dress her up from our closet!
We will treat her to a Mother's Day flower, glass of champagne punch, and corset fitting.
You can treat her to a boudoir photo session, a fantastic hat, delightful piece of jewelry or anything from our magical array of items to keep the mother in your life feeling treasured and sexy.
Hayes Valley is full of wonderful places for brunch and drinks and treats.
