Godmother of Modern Corsetry
Autumn became known as the Godmother of Modern Corsetry after launching Dark Garden in 1989, reviving corsets for a modern body and audience. Growing up on the Renaissance Fair circuit, Autumn made her first corset at 12. Shortly after reaching the age of majority, she turnednthe carfting of custom corsets and ensembles into a groundbreaking business which established many of the techniques and standards observed by corsetmakers across the world today. Her devotion to supporting uncommon beauty through the practice of radical inclusiveness has brought her both job satisfaction and a dedicated international following who appreciate the welcome that she and her team offer to everyone who visits either of her two boutiques.
