Deborah Brand started her career in fashion in 1990 and prior to developing her Couture Business she sold all over the world in such countries as America, Japan, Australia, Canada and most of Europe. Here in London, Deborah sold to Harrods, Liberty’s, Selfridges, Joseph and had her own store in Kensington. Her regular press coverage included Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and The Sunday Times. She has had the pleasure of dressing a wealth of celebrity clients including Amal Clooney, Adriana Lima, Bjork, Cara Delevingne, Chloe Sevigny, Davina McCall, Demi Moore, Eve the Rapper, Faye Dunaway, Kylie Minogue, Kim Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Oona Chaplin, Penelope Cruz, Tess Daly, Salma Hayek and Yasmin Le Bon. Her first corset dress was commissioned exclusively by Harrods in 1995, she has spent the last 20 years honing and improving her craft.
Since then being one of the world’s leading corsetières, corsetry is central to her designs and Deborah devoted years to examining and re-working every aspect of its construction through her luxury London-based company Deborah Brand. The corset became a staple undergarment in the 1900’s which predated the invention of the brassiere, and with this in mind Deborah placed the agenda upon herself to update the corset silhouette and incorporated the bra cup into her corsets, uniquely reflecting the evolution of underwear in todays society. In the next 10 years Deborah holds the strong belief that corsetry with become a staple garment in every women’s wardrobe, and with this agenda Deborah is one to keep an eye on as she takes on the world of couture.
“There’s a whole other world of corsets out there, the real McCoy, designed not as a flourish but to re-draw your lines. The London-based Deborah Brand makes stupendous bespoke pieces that will shrink your waist by up to five inches. With more than 100 components including 45 steels and polymer bones, a silk duchesse satin lining and five metres-yes, five metres-of lacing, these are objects of beauty and seemingly of another age.”
Anna Murphy, Fashion Director, The Times”
“It’s rare that anything is ever 100% Ace. There always seems to be something – some little thing – with Deborah’s work everything – every little thing – perhaps especially the little things – the details, are all in the realm of perfection”
