A Leg Up

One of La Gartier's glamorous garters.

“I design garters for the modern bride who wants something extra special, unique and luxurious on her wedding day,” declares Sarah Dobson of her locally made line of custom-crafted garters. Dobson’s most recent La Gartier collection takes the traditional thigh toppers to a new level of luxury. “Imagine Elizabeth Taylor meets Marilyn Monroe meets Audrey Hepburn,” explains the designer. Dobson scours high-end fabric stores to hole-in-the-wall antique shops to find the perfect pieces of ribbon or vintage brooches to adorn her wares, which are as unique as the bride who wears them. $55-$150 for custom pieces.
