Kinfolk! Many people are quick to say that this new generation of children are doomed, but 15-yr-old Moziah Bridges is proving that narrative to be false. He is the founder and CEO of MO’s Bows, a bow tie company. He started the company at 12 years old with the help of an investment from the popular televison show, Shark Tank.
Fast forward 3 years and Bridges has signed a seven figure licensing deal with The National Basketball Association(NBA) to produce bow ties with NBA logos on them. You read that right THE NBA! This isn’t the first time he has worked with the NBA, back in 2015 he served as a fashion correspondent for that year’s draft. He provided handmade ties to the drafts picks. His bow ties will be sold on the NBA’s website and also in retail outlets. This is huge!
“My goal has always been to make Mo’s Bows a household name for kid entrepreneurship and men’s accessories,”
He also says,
“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.”
His websites states that he plans to attend college in New York City to persue a degree in fashion design, and have his own clothing line by age 20. These are amazing goals and aspiration for an outstanding young man.
Check out his website MO’s Bows and step up your wardrobe. Also check out his Instagram Page. This is definitely black excellence and this young man is flexin in his complexion!
Whut say you?
Kinfolk! So I’m scrolling my timeline on Instagram and Twitter as I normally do, so that I can keep my finger on the pulse of all the fuckery that is present in these streets with “45” in office. As I am scrolling I see “Black Twitter” going in on what I assume is the “new” but not really new men’s fashion trend, “the men’s romper” started by the RompHim Kickstarter.
Now I guess because “rompers” are traditionally considered to be female clothing item, this is automatically a problem for some small minded individuals(so-called straight men). I’ve heard and read comments like “Can women have something?” or “That’s gay as hell!” I honestly don’t see how a piece of clothing can make someone gay!?! Can some enlighten me please? This trend is not new, some of y’all Daddies were rocking romper long and short back in 70’s!
Surely, Jim Brown and Ike Turner weren’t gay or in some way less masculine because of their clothing choices. I honestly feel if people spent more time concerned about their own affairs and not the affairs of others the world would a better place! If a man wants to put on romper as a form of self -expression then so GOTDAMN be it! Is what someone else wearing affecting you or your bottom line? I highly doubt it. To each his or her own. If it’s not for you, then it’s not for you! PERIOD! If Young Joc can rock a bang and swoop, then why can’t Young Dro wear a romper? That is his business! Be concerned about your own sh*t!
