    "...In my quest for something beautifully handcrafted and ultimately me, I found fashion designer Madara Plica, who’s atelier is located in the Barras. The Latvian-born designer is, in all honesty, an amazing talent. Armed with only some of my misused fashion jargon, a picture or two and a ten-minute conversation, she conjured up the perfect gown. Plus, she offered to guide me through the entire process... I cannot imagine Madara’s wizardry. Even with such personal insight, I still can’t measure the finesse, talent and people skills it takes to please a fashion client, not to mention patience..."

    " Hi Madara. I hope you have managed to recover from all the hard work over the last few months! I just wanted to say, thank you so much for producing my gorgeous wedding and bridesmaid dresses, little furry jackets and coordinating ties for the boys. We loved them so much! You managed to create exactly what we wanted, the were finished with such attention to detail and we had so much fun working with you along the way. You really are a star!

    "Dear Madara, the corset is beautiful and fits absolutely perfect (I've been wearing it all day ;-))
We had both been looking for something like the old one (I've had that one 15(!) years) but to no avail.
So thank you for your wonderful work.
Sincerely
CamTan"

   I commissioned Madara to recreate a much loved but very worn out wired, black lace basque. From the outset she was professional and communicative, replying to all my emails by return and keeping me informed as to her progress. Her selection of materials was first-class, the quality of her work excellent and the finished garment was delivered on time.
As I live in London and Madara is based in Glasgow, the commission was based only on a recommendation from a friend of a friend, and carried out from afar. I would have no hesitation now in recommending her myself."

    Hi Madara, just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work you did on both mine and Jen's dress. Your brilliant skills coupled with your lovely personality made the alterations process completely stress free for me and both dresses looked absolutely beautiful! x"
