Memphis, TN: An 11 year-old Memphis entrepreneur is skyrocketing to fame. Moziah Bridges runs his own bow tie business, and people across the country are taking notice.

Mo started his business, Mo’s Bows at the age of 9.  Two years later, he’s taking the fashion world by storm. “Well, I really like to dress up and I couldn’t find any bow ties that I really liked so my grandma, she showed me how to sew. After that my business took off.” Mo says that’s how his business got its start. He’s a kid on a mission to dress sharp. His mom said, “Initially wearing bow ties at school he was considered weird. But he kept going. He definitely stands strong on who he is and his self-identity,” said Mo’s mom Tramica Morris. 

That strong fashion stance has landed young Mo in the spotlight. The kidtrepeneur has made an appearance on the Steve Harvey Show and he’s been featured in big time publications like British GQ, Forbes and even Oprah Magazine.  “Oprah is big,” said Mo. “Nobody is bigger than O. I thought, ‘this is really cool. What other kind of kid gets to be in Oprah Magazine?”

Mo’s Mom makes sure her pint-sized businessman stays grounded. “You still have chores. Homework comes first. And as hot as it gets, the lawn still needs mowed. One of my friends says, ‘Mo mows!’ Absolutely Mo mows,” said Tramica.

The dapper young man is taking the fame in stride, continuing to focus on the basics of his business, working on his colorful bow ties from his workroom in the family home.  “I just pick whatever I see, it just has to speak to me. It has to be fun. It has to be preppy. I give people these handmade, special bow ties which you can’t get at Walgreens, you can’t get at Target. It’s Mo’s Bows,” said Mo.

Tramica says, “At 11, he’s already a pretty good businessman when it comes to the quality of bow tie. If it’s messed up, he’s not sending it.” 

Mo continues to dream big. He wants to become a fashion designer and have his own clothing line by the age of 20. “Hopefully I will make pants, blazers, really cool blazers, and hopefully be bigger than Ralph Lauren. Dream big and think big. That’s all you have to do,” said Mo.

Mo’s plan is to finish 6th grade, then high school.  After that, his sights are set on Parsons School of Design in New York. You can check out his colorful bow ties by clicking here.
