Bling it On (3 x 60′) – Best known for her outrageous designs on TLC’s My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, Boston-based fashion designer Sondra Celli setps lives in a world of sparkling crystals. Believing that more is a must, Sondra invites viewers into her business – which is all about fashion, design, and bling! From gypsies, to babies, to brides, Sondra and team bring designer dreams to life.
Self-proclaimed pleaser and perfectionist Sondra Celli makes sure every outfit that passes through her doors is absolutely impeccable, down to the very last detail. Sondra, along with the help of her “blingettes” and seamstresses, manage to work in tandem and get every job done, regardless of the difficult designs and tight time constraints.
Sondra takes viewers into her workroom to share her visions, challenges, and successes for every outfit. From drag queen costumes, to blinged out baby strollers, to neon wedding dresses, she welcomes every request with an open mind – but with demanding deadlines, she and her team are always working against the clock to fulfill the elaborate orders.
A Neon Wedding Dress! – Dressmaker Sondra Celli and team work around the clock to make a steampunk vision come to life, a blinged out birthday dress fit for a princess, a classy yet playful look for pet store owners and their dog, and a neon wedding dress for a Vegas bride!
The Zipper Just Split! – Sondra Celli’s skills are tested when a self-proclaimed tomboy wants design control over her gown; a cancer-survivor is pretty in pink when she asked to be blush; a blinged-out gypsy stroller is ready to roll; a drag queen diva has a wardrobe malfunction!
The Craziest Request Yet! – Designer Sondra Celli finds herself trying to please some very opinionated clients: a bride-to-be and a pushy maid of honor, an aspiring singer with her shot in the spotlight, a ballroom dancer with an overly critical partner, and her pickiest client of all – her mother!
