On October 15th, we are hosting a special Saturday lacing event! We know weeknights, even Fridays, can be hard, so we're giving you another opportunity to enjoy an evening of lacing education with us. And to go with the special scheduling, we're featuring a special host: me! My name is Marianne Faulkner, and you may know me from my previous column on The Lingerie Addict, or my work here at Dark Garden as Fit Expert, Couture Coordinator, and Associate Designer under the name Pop Antique. I've been with Dark Garden for nearly eight years, five of which have been under the close tutelage of our internationally renowned proprietress Autumn Adamme.

Whether you're seeking lacing tips to top off your Halloween costume or are training your person-of-honor to lace you in for a late fall wedding, we invite you to join us at 5pm here at 321 Linden St., San Francisco. We'll teach you the right techniques for lacing a corset onto yourself or another person. I'm also happy to take questions about waist training and other specialized aspects of corsetry.
