I will sell the t-shirts in my website, I want to make t-shirts with big time rush, one direction, apple, etc logo
I live in Ecuador
Is this your band?
I guess not since it seems obvious that you are not
Rush, One Direction nor Apple.
Yes, you can get sued for this; and,
yes it is wrong, illegal and immoral.
Even though you live overseas, there are lawyers there that can prosecute you. The truth is the more successful you get, the more likely you will be sued. Why not offer a licensing fee and get a right to do this? Of course, you should discuss all of this with an attorney.
You will likely violate the trademark rights of the bands and companies you named. I advise that you run your proposal by an IP attorney in your country before doing this.
The answers appearing on this Website from Creative Vision Legal and Michael J. Thomas do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your legal matter, and are presented only as information to members of the general public.
You will be violating trademark rights and may be violating copyrights as well. These rights likely exist in Ecuador, but you should confirm this with an attorney there. I expect that you may sell shirts to customers in other countries, including the United States. This will be infringement under U.S. law, and your merchandise may be seized at customs. Please do not proceed without obtaining licenses from the rights owners.
It is more than likely that Apple has registered its trademark in Ecuador -- and probably in every other county around the world! The bands may or may not have but may be able to show they have used their mark there. Doing this is a bad idea and minimally you should get local legal advice if you want to pursue this.

You know this is illegal in the US. It is almost certainly illegal in Ecuador, also. Those are world famous brand names.
You risk criminal prosecution, as does anyone whom through whom you would sell in the US.
Moreover, you risk having your product confiscated by US Customs (CBP-ICE).
Your risk is proportional to how much you sell.
Any website on which you do this, if in the US (such as Amazon or eBay) will have a DMCA policy that will likely be used to take you webpages or even website down for infringement. Your customers in the USA will likely be confronted, especially if they are resellers. This is very risky for you. Be careful or you will end up in jail.
I am not your lawyer and you are not my client. Free advice here is without recourse and any reliance thereupon is at your sole risk. This is done without compensation as a free public service. I am licensed in IL, MO, TX and I am a Reg. Pat. Atty. so advice in any other jurisdiction is strictly general advice and should be confirmed with an attorney licensed in that jurisdiction.
