Dapper beyond his years, Moziah “Mo” Bridges believed as early as age nine that men should know how to tie their own ties. Unable to settle with a clip-on, he crafted scraps of his Granny’s fabric into more fashionable — and fun — neckwear.
Now 13, Bridges is at the helm of Mo’s Bows, selling more than $300,000 in colorful, handcrafted bowties through retail stores such as Neiman Marcus. He also earned a spot on "Shark Tank, and gained a mentor while there: FUBU founder Daymond John. Moziah plans to have his own clothing line before age 20; the only question is if it will take that long.
Bridges’ mother serves as CEO, and his grandmother, a retired seamstress, is also part of his staff. But Bridges still handpicks each piece of fabric and approves every visual element — all with the goal of making the world a more debonair place.
