MODA Announces New Apparel License for The Henry Ford

(New York, NY – February 18, 2009) MODA International Marketing announces a Licensing Agreement between client The Henry Ford and Bell Ranger Apparel to create a line of apparel –t-shirts, fleece, headwear, bags and accessories — using imagery and other graphics from The Henry Ford Photo Archive.

Located in Dearborn, Michigan, The Henry Ford is America’s premiere history destination that celebrates innovation, ingenuity and resourcefulness. This National Historic Landmark, founded in 1929 by automotive pioneer Henry Ford, includes five distinct venues and attracts more than 1.5 million visitors annually.

“The Henry Ford’s unparalleled archives and collections are considered to be the finest ever assembled documenting the American Experience,” says Terri Anderson, Senior Director National Retail Sales. “Our photo archive, in particular, is a treasury of images that reflect every day life in America. We are extremely excited about partnering with Bell Ranger and sharing these images with the rest of the world through a unique and creative apparel collection.”

“In this challenging retail environment, successful licenses must resonate with consumers and offer the retailer depth of design,” says licensee Marlon Carter. “From the moment that we got a glimpse of the archive we knew that we could offer differentiation that would excite the consumer and break through the clutter.”

“The Henry Ford is an authentic American brand, says Michelle Alfandari, President of MODA. “It is about the best of America. It reminds us how much we have offered the world and inspires us to continue in that tradition.”
