Synopsis

Most 13-year-olds don’t wear bow ties. But then, most 13-year-olds aren’t Moziah Bridges. From a young age, this Memphis native loved to dress up and express himself through fashion. After his grandmother taught him to use a sewing machine, he started making his own unique bow ties, eventually selling them under the label Mo’s Bows. This documentary takes us into Mo’s world and his business, which has become a fun-filled family affair.
