Tony Drockton is the driving force and creative energy behind Hammitt, an American handbag brand designed in Los Angeles. After growing up in Ohio, learning the customer service ropes in his father’s grocery store, Tony earned his MBA from Bowling Green University. While Tony tasted early success with start-ups in construction and finance, he felt called to the artistic world of fashion, where he imagined building a successful premium brand that prioritized craftsmanship and lifelong quality. Above all, he had visions of a brand that built connections between individuals and communities. Today, Hammitt can be found in over 800 retail locations nationwide, as well as on hammitt.com.
