About

From passion to fashion

BEST QUALITY GARTERS!

We are often asked why our garters are more expensive than similar garters on Etsy.
We can proudly say that our quality is far beyond anything you can find here.
Unlike most other garter sellers on Etsy WE DO NOT GLUE rhinestone appliques to lace - we HAND-SEW them. Each lace garter is surged and all seams are finished by hand to prevent unraveling. Rhinestone appliques are carefully inspected for flaws and are hand-sewn to garters. Some of the garters are made by me and some by my seamstresses - my former students whom I taught hand-sewing techniques. Our garters do not fall apart, appliques will not peel off the lace. Each garter set comes with fashion tape strips in case if you need to secure them on your leg.

MY STORY

Since I can remember myself I was always crafting, sewing, knitting or embroidering. When I finished high school I decided to take my passion onto the next level. I studied fashion design and pattern-making at ESMOD fashion colledge in Paris, which I graduated with Master's of Arts degree.
In 2007 I got married. As a fashion designer I could not not make my own dress, right? So I did that, I created my own dress as well as all my accessories. I loved working with myself as a bride, I was pregnant and I was very picky about colors, my dress was turquoise color. I decided that I will do the same for other brides too.

In 2008 my husband, our son and I moved from France to USA, California.
In 2009 while I worked as draping and pattern-making instructor at FIDM in San Francisco I opened my first Etsy store Viogemini and in 2012 my GarterQueen store which was so successful that I had to quit my job to keep up with all the orders that were pouring in. I miss teaching, but I also love working with my brides :-)

2 years ago my business grew so much that I had to move the production out of my house and hire an assistant and 2 part time seamstress. Now I have a brick-and-mortar store in Fremont, with large storage and production space,where I design new accessories, take pictures and process the orders. Since the arrival of my second son in may 2015, he also has his own space in the store :-)
We also love working with our local brides, to whom we offer custom design bridal gowns and alteration services as well as a wide range of bridal accessories.

Frequently asked questions

Why buy GarterQueen garters?

Unlike most other garters sold here on Etsy, we do not use glue to make our garters. We use surging and sewing machines as well as a lot of hand-sewing to create beautiful and durable accessories for your Big Day. All appliques and buttons are hand-sewn to lace ensuring heirloom quality of all our designs. Having Master's degree in fashion design in Paris, I taught my seamstresses Haute Coutre sewing techniques, so you can be assured you are purchasing something extra special to treasure for a lifetime.

Are garters heavy?

All sparkly embellishments on garters are made with genuine glass crystals set in metal claws, therefore they are a little heavy.
We make garters to measure, to ensure a snug fit and we include free fashion tape strips with each order. Most brides end up not needing sticky tapes, but sometimes it is helpful. If you do not find fashion tape in your package, we have probably forgot ( sorry :-), please let us know and we will send them to you ASAP.

Can you create a special garter for me?

I love custom orders! I offer the largest range of lace and ribbon colors and plenty of appliques and jewels.
Please contact me with your ideas / colors and I will create your special and unique garter for your Big Day!
