50 Years Of Ford Mustang - AutomotiveSTYLE

Ford Motor Company celebrates Mustang with its first-ever global collaboration with world-renowned designers to create a one-of-a-kind apparel collection. Timed to the 50th anniversary of the Mustang’s debut, fashion innovators including Anna Sui, Rogan, Paula Cademartori, CO|TE and Pamela Love celebrated the iconic pony car through a limited-edition line of shirts for the Mustang Unleashed collection. 


On the first press review evening of the New York Auto Show, at the Empire State Building where the all-new Mustang convertible was on display 86 stories above New York City – replicating the Mustang debut 50 years ago – the designers came together to announce the unique collaboration during a panel discussion, featuring their personal inspirations for the Mustang designs they will create. 



Unleashing Passion and Creativity – Ford Launches Global Fashion Collaboration Marking Mustang’s 50th
  • Five top fashion designers from around the world will collaborate with Ford on the Mustang Unleashed collection – a limited-edition line of apparel inspired by Mustang
  • Mustang Unleashed will feature prominent designers including Anna Sui, Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay-Hahn of Rogan, Paula Cademartori, Tomaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari of CO|TE, and Pamela Love
  • Each designer will unleash his or her creativity by interpreting the spirit and personality of Mustang with one-of-a-kind designs on three shirts; the 15-shirt collection goes on sale globally this fall
Sui, a Detroit native, says that Mustang has adapted over the years to cultural changes, but always has remained true to what it represents – freedom and passion. “Fashion is ever evolving, and is a historical representation of what is going on in the world,” she said. “As a designer, I am constantly inspired by everything around me, but it is important for me to remain true to my aesthetic and identity. Mustang has accomplished the same.”

And as I literally struggled to live and breathe fashion air, I was able to meet and smile through a nice chat with the one and only Anna Sui.


As trendsetters, the Mustang Unleashed designers embody the Mustang spirit. They are emotive, expressive and “unleashed” in their own right, living and working with a sense of freedom and individual style. These five designers from around the world will each create three unique Mustang-inspired shirts, resulting in a collection of 15 designs. The collection will be produced by Loomstate, a leader in organic and sustainable apparel, and will be available globally this fall. 

Ford Mustang is the newest member of a very exclusive club – vehicles in continuous production for 50 years. During the last five decades, Mustang has gained worldwide popularity and become an enduring part of pop culture, with more than 9.2 million cars sold and more than 3,300 appearances on film and TV – including Mustang’s latest big-screen appearance as the hero car in “Need for Speed.”



I had the chance to check this beautiful piece of machinery out back in December last year and I am in love with the fact that the 5.0 is back!
