More than thirty years ago, Susanne von Dörnberg, horse breeder and passionate nature lover, created an exclusive fashion house that soon became one of the most successful in Germany and a favorite amongst those in the know. Born and raised in Germany, Susanne has been the head designer and creative director of the company since day one and her authenticity is deeply entrenched in VON DÖRNBERG’s world.
It all started with Susanne dreaming about a traditional Loden garment like her husband’s hunting jacket, but with a more female silhouette and a distinct softness for comfortable daily use. By combining the silhouette and fit of her father’s military jacket and the traditional looks and weathered Loden of her husband’s much used hunting jackets, she created a innovative new class of daily wear that soon became iconic for VON DÖRNBERG – MUNICH.
In the late 2000’s, Julius von Dörnberg, Susanne's beloved son, took the role of CEO. Susanne still continues to head the design. The second generation of the family business honors its heritage by producing garments of the highest quality and style, with a distinctive German flair and international appeal. In addition to fashion, the passion of the family applies to horse breeding, equestrian sports and country life.
