I not entirely sure about the Motley credits since it could be referring to an entire team of costume designers (see this link). IMDb, on the other hand, does only list her as costume designer for this films. So it could be a single person credit or it could be a credit for a group of persons. Does anybody know something about this?

Great Expectations – costumes designed by Sophie Devine of Motley

This seems to suggest that Motley is a 'fashion house' or a company of costume/dress designers and Sophie Devine worked for that company

I found someone's PhD thesis entitled "The convergence of influences on and evolving praxis of mid-twentieth century British theatre design (1935-1965) through a close study of selected works by Motley and Jocelyn Herbert". A footnote in the introduction says:

"The three women who worked under the collective title of Motley were Sophie Harris (1900-66), Margaret ‘Percy’ Harris (1904-2000) and Elizabeth Montgomery (1902-1993)."

In the opening credits, Brenda Dabbs is credited as 'Wardrobe' and it says 'Costumes by Motley'.

from Wiki
Motley was the name of the theatre design firm made up of three English designers: sisters Margaret (known as "Percy," 1904–2000) and Sophie Harris (1900–1966) and Elizabeth Montgomery Wilmot (1902–1993).

We have profiles in which make-up effects are by KNB Effects Group, with that as a group divider and Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger listed within it – can the same thing be done with Motley and costumes?
