About Gill and her brand
I’ve been in the Cape Town clothing industry for many years and am passionate about supporting the local industry. Over the years, I have seen first-hand the impact that cheap imported goods has had on the local manufacturers. However, as the fabric mills and big factories closed down, opportunities opened up for designers like me to utilise the talents of the workers who started up their own small factories. There are many talented local brands who as small businesses, support these other small businesses. In starting The Sleep Collective, my husband and I wanted to create a space to not only sell my own label, but to help other local brands gain exposure, too. The products we’ve collected are all related to the luxury of the night-time ritual that enhances relaxation. From sleepwear to bath and body products, they are all lovingly hand crafted from as many locally sourced materials as possible.
I started my Bella G label back in 2007. At the time, the lingerie and sleepwear was mostly exported to Germany and the clothing side was sold through local boutiques. I had a second brand that I was designing too, but when I became a mom, I found I simply couldn’t manage it all. I have now come back to focusing on my favourite thing – sleepwear! I love using pretty lace and adding the delicate touch of satin bows. The design process starts with fabric sourcing and when I find a fabric, I immediately ‘see’ what style it will become. The fun part after making the pattern, is seeing the first sample come to life and playing around with it on the dummy, to make sure it matches the image in my mind. I have had the same loyal team working with me for many years. I am confident that every garment passes through each process carefully touched by experienced hands.
