Sondra Celli grew up in the US but moved to Europe at age 15 to study fashion design in Italy, Denmark, Sweden, France, England, and Switzerland. She returned to America, and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, from where she graduated with a major in men’s wear in 1978. Celli then worked for some prestigious fashion houses in Italy, New York, and Hong Kong which both helped her to gain a lot of experience, and increase her net worth.
In 1984, Celli established her fashion company called The Sondra Celli Company, now known as Sondra Celli Designs, concentrating on making unorthodox crystal couture and accessories for toddlers, older children and women. Her unique studio is located in Waltham, Massachusetts, just near Boston, where Celli’s one-of-a-kind dresses decorated with Swarovski crystals can be found. Sondra’s original and innovative creations found their way into numerous magazines, including Town & Country, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, New York Times, The Sun, The Boston Globe, and The Huffington Post.
Since 2012, Celli’s dresses have featured on TLC’s reality show called “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding”, a spin-off from the British “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding”. The series is following the gypsies and their culture, and has great entertainment value in not only recognising the general culture of Romani gypsies, but also their wedding tradition including expensive dresses. Celli is known for making clothes for the Gypsy community since her graduation in 1978, and with the success of the reality show (1.6 million viewers per episode on average), Celli’s famous dresses are in high demand.
Sondra and her team worked on the TV mini-series “Bling It On” in 2012, showcasing the unique dresses with sparkling crystals, and showing the insights into her business and her creations for gypsies, babies, and brides. Since 2013, Celli has also worked on another TLC reality project called “Gypsy Sisters”, and is responsible for the costumes that the four women protagonists are showcasing.
Celli designed custom uniforms for the New England Patriots Cheerleaders, and also made an astonishing limited edition porcelain called Crystal Bride by Sondra Celli. The figurine is inspired by one of Sondra’s distinguished gipsy wedding dresses, and decorated with 31 handmade flowers, platinum pieces, and Swarovski crystals. This Sondra creation can be found on Amazon.com.
Regarding her personal life, Sondra Celli’s most intimate details such as marital status and the number of children are unknown, as Sondra has successfully kept them away from the public’s eye. It is known that she currently resides in Boston, though.
