Here is the 
SF Gate Article
where Dita describes some of her favorite San Francisco Spots including:

Dark Garden, 321 Linden St., San Francisco. "When I met Autumn Adamme at Dark Garden in Hayes Valley, she started creating custom-fit corsets for me. It was a dream to have each piece fit exactly how I wanted it - tighter in some places, roomier in others. There's a huge difference between a bespoke corset and one purchased ready-to-wear. (A longtime corset aficionado, the 5-foot-5 Von Teese has trained her waist down to 22 inches; tight-laced she has been known to reach Scarlett O'Hara-envy-inducing 16 inches.) Dark Garden makes many of my corsets for my shows. It's hard to name a favorite, because each one means a lot to me, and they can't really be compared to each other. The one that Autumn and Catherine D'Lish collaborated on for my Playboy magazine cover is a real favorite. It's a lace corset that has been copied over and over - every designer took cues from that corset design. It's become a gold standard for corset style and raised the bar for corset designers."
