Shelton Clothiers to Host Mo's Bows Trunk Show

Posted By on Thu, Dec 22, 2011 at 11:07 AM

Remember Moziah Bridges? That precocious young man we reported on earlier this year who makes and sells his own line of bow ties?

He's back, and this time, he's taking his trunk of ties downtown for a show and sale at Shelton Clothiers. From 1 to 3 p.m. on Friday (December 23rd), you can check out the Mo's Bows collection of ties, handle some last minute holiday shopping, and even meet the little man himself.

Tom Shelton, owner of Shelton Clothiers, says he got in touch with Moziah and his mother, Tramica Morris, after reading an article on Mo's Bows in the Memphis Flyer (Hear that, Pulitzer board?).

"In my business, we do quite a few trunk shows with custom suits and shirts," says Shelton. "I just thought it would be cool to have him down here to do a little trunk show."

Moziah's business has taken off in the past few months. He makes his signature ties for Shelton Clothiers and his Etsy shop online and handles custom orders, such as glow-in-the-dark and special occasion ties.

"We thought with Christmas coming around, folks are doing last minute shopping, and the bow ties would make really good stocking-stuffers," says Morris. "So we figured, let's go ahead and unload some of these fun, satin, red and blue, and Christmas bow ties for the holidays."

While he's certainly making strides towards becoming a famous fashion designer, Moziah still has his ten-year-old moments.

"He's pretty excited about the show," says Morris, "but at the same time he's still 10, so he's like 'Am I getting my Nintendo DS and my cowboy boots?'"
