Motwary was initially trained as a fashion designer and worked for prestigious houses such as Dior and Galliano, Chloe as well as through his own brand until 2009. His costumry has been exhibited on several occasions and through museums and exhibitions at Centre Pompidou(FR), Modemuseum Hasselt, Centraal Museum (NL), Gaite Lyrique (FR), MICHAEL CACOYIANNES FOUNDATION (GR), LANITIS FOUNDATION (CY), PREMIERE VISION (FR) […] In the meantime he launched a fashion blog (2004-2015), which was soon ranked as one of the top in the world, alongside “The Business of Fashion”, “Anna Dello Russo”, “Style Salvage” […] Blogging opened the way for him to discover other interests, such as writing and fashion photography, by creating the documentation of his life and global acquaintances, on a daily basis.

This dual identity lead him to conceive and curate last year’s exhibition ‘Haute-a-Porter’ at the Modemuseum Hasselt and the publication of it best-selling accompanying book. There he investigated the fine line that separates or ultimately unifies, Couture and Pret-a-Porter. In this new project under the aegis of Loukia & Michael Zampelas Art Museum, an association championing the excellence in Arts and creative expression Motwary focuses on two of the many aspects concluding his body of work: a selection of his most favorite photographs along with his journalistic ventures for Dapper Dan magazine.
