Moziah Bridges’s colorful, handmade ties have made an impression on major networks since Mo’s Bows’ debut. In addition to Shark Tank, he’s appeared on The Steve Harvey Show, The Today Show, Good Morning America, 20/20, CBS This Morning, and the Disney Channel.
The teenage CEO was also inducted into the Tennessee State Museum Costume and Textile Institute in 2014, and then took his fashion expertise to a new level in 2015. Moziah not only served as the fashion correspondent for the 2015 NBA Draft, but was also twice on Time’s list of “30 Most Influential Teens.” He was also invited to the inaugural White House Demo Day, where he was able to personally meet President Barack Obama and give him a special “Obama Blue” Mo’s Bow. In 2016, Moziah was on Fortune’s “18 under 18” list of the country’s most innovative and ambitious teens. By 2017, the National Basketball Association sealed a partnership with the young fashion designer to make custom neckties and bow ties for all 30 NBA teams.
Shark Tank’s Daymond John serves as Moziah’s mentor as he continues to grow his business. Mo’s Bows has five employees, including the “CEO of Mo” a.k.a Mom, Tramica Morris, and Granny; who taught Moziah how to sew. The business-minded teenager, who handpicks every fabric and approves every visual element, has sold more than $700,000 of bow ties and men’s accessories.
Mo’s Bows are sold in retail stores throughout the United States and have partnered with Cole Haan, Bloomingdale’s, the Home Shopping Network and Neiman Marcus.
In 2012 Moziah started the Go Mo! Summer Camp Scholarship Fund, a charity focused on sending Memphis children to summer camp. To date, the charity efforts of Mo’s Bows have sent more than fifty kids to summer camp. Currently, Moziah is focused on expanding his apparel design skills by entering as an emerging fashion designer in the 2021 Memphis Fashion Week Fashion Show. In his spare time, you will find Moziah sketching, designing, thrift shopping, and spending time with friends and family.
