15-year-old fashion entrepreneur from Memphis, Tennessee, Moziah Mo Bridges recently inked a seven-figure licensing deal with the NBA.
The partnership initiated by the basketball league, gives Bridges’ necktie company, Mo’s Bows, the rights to manufacture and sell products that feature the logos of NBA teams.
The Tennessee teenager stands to make over $6 billion in revenue this year.
Mo’s Bows was founded when Mo was 9; he decided he wanted to begin making ties and took sewing lessons from his grandmom.
“I had my grandmom, and she helped me sew, and she helped me sew my first bow tie. And I’m so thankful,” Mo Bridges said, speaking to CBS.
“Moziah’s creativity and entrepreneurial spirit are an inspiration, and we are thrilled about the launch of the Mo’s Bows NBA Collection,” Lisa Piken Koper, NBA Vice President, Global Partnerships told Forbes.
“We are always looking for ways to diversify our merchandise offerings and cater to our fashionable fan base, and couldn’t be more excited that fans will have a fun and unique way to show support for their favorite NBA teams.”
“My goal has always been to make Mo’s Bows a household name for kid entrepreneurship and men’s accessories. Partnerships like this one will help me reach my goals of having a full clothing line by the time I graduate from college. It feels really good to know a major company like the NBA believes in me and my vision to shake up the world through fashion,” Mo Bridges told Forbes.
