How to start this post? Yay! Maybe woohoo? Perhaps my personal favorite: huzzah!
Yes, let's go with huzzah. Thank you for voting us the Best Lingerie of San Francisco this year. We couldn't have done it without you. Not the voting itself, but YOU, our clients, coming into our shop, inspiring us to make beautiful things, proving that corsets aren't just for special occasions (though they have the power to make those even special-er), they are for dancing and lounging and living. They are for you, to make you feel special. You inspire us to make corsets and couture clothing based on your real bodies, like our winning new Valentine designed for our extra-curvy clients.

Also, thank you to other wonderful lingerie designers who sell through us, such as Honey Cooler Handmade. We realize that we were voted Best Lingerie, not just Best Corsetshop, and I would be remiss not to mention the other designers with whom we have the pleasure to work, including the jewelers and milliners who make Dark Garden such a singular place to shop. After all, woman cannot live in corset alone.
Not that we'll stop you if you'd like to try, of course. Visit the shop and see what Dark Garden can do for your summer wardrobe, inside or outside the boudoir. If it's lingerie you're after, we currently have some beautiful limited stock of vintage stockings.
