Von Dutch Originals
As Owner/CEO of Von Dutch Originals, Tonny Sorensen is a true visionary. Sorensens unique approach to marketing has redefined the art of product placement for media, celebrities, movies and magazines. Under Sorensens leadership, Von Dutch Originals has become a leading American fashion label with a rock-and-roll attitude rooted in Kustom Kulture.
After investing in the company in 2000, Sorensen rapidly grew the business. The company now creates t-shirts, hats, accessories and more for its lines of men and womens products. In addition, Von Dutch Originals has successfully crossed over into a variety of other product offerings by licensing the Von Dutch name to a line of childrens wear, footwear, a jewelry line, a kustom motorcycle company, and even a die-cast miniatures toy line.
Sorensens goal is to make Von Dutch Originals the premiere lifestyle brand, so more licensing opportunities are a certainty in the near future. Sorensen stresses authenticity to the Kustom Kulture tradition. This high-octane lifestyle embodies a gritty creativity, hip nostalgia and a reverence for the road. Kustom Kulture is an artistic celebration and exploration of Americas car and motorcycle underground that was popularized in 1950s-60s.
