The apparel knowledge hub
MOTIF is the apparel knowledge hub that connects professionals around the world with the skills and industry expertise they need to transform their businesses, lives and careers.
The fashion industry has been built on centuries of craftsmanship passed from one generation to another in some form of apprenticeship. Today these age old techniques are combining with new technology.
The fashion world needs innovation, technical intelligence, and practical skills to tackle the challenges of the future and counter the global race for talent. MOTIF exists to bridge this gap and gives you access to training, professional development and mentorship from the industry’s top practitioners.
MOTIF traces its beginnings to the late Dr. Wang, founder of Alvanon, the global innovations company, and his passion for education in the apparel industry. Over years of client engagement experience with hundreds of retailers, brands, manufacturers and vendors around the work, the idea for MOTIF was born. After two years of incubation in the Alvanon family, MOTIF spun out as a separate company in 2018.
