Before launching VIERECK, Deborah graduated from UCLA and FIDM, designed and manufactured a women’s line called SAGE, and then shifted her focus to costume design and stylist work. During this period, she designed costumes for Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction and then for Gwen Stefani. She created most of Gwen’s costumes for stage, videos, press and photo shoots during the Tragic Kingdom period. Deborah began designing for some of the most ground-breaking musicians emerging at this time. Repeatedly, her favorite artists were the ones calling to work with her. One of her favorites was the scandalous and innovative Marilyn Manson. Responsible for the creation of his iconic satanic look, Deborah incorporated her own grandmother’s old girdles and corsets as well as leather and taxidermy into his stage wear. She also designed his bandmates’ famous spiky coats and medieval dresses.
She designed elaborate costumes for Korn – studded leather kilt suits, bright wool and lame kilt suits, hell-raiser cloaks, priest cassocks, and embellished coveralls. She also created hundreds of the heavily quilted and embroidered coveralls for Slipknot’s nine members. Many rock bands, including Queens of the Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Motley Crue, and the Rolling Stones were her loyal clients as well. She designed wardrobe for such rap artists as Ludacris, Snoop Dog, Krayzee Bones, Eminem, and Sticky Fingaz, and created more than 100 costumes for Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary Parade as well.
