Nearly 100 women attended the Women of NECC membership tea on Wednesday, Oct. 25, in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill Campus. The women enjoyed tea sandwiches, dessert and tea donated by NexDine while listening to Sondra Celli of Sondra Celli Designs talk about her crystal couture fashion business.

Celli is the daughter of fashion icon Yolanda. She is well known for her involvement in the television show “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding.”

On display were Celli’s dazzling items which included “blinged-out” baby gowns, crystalized New England Patriots shirts and shoes and an extravagant pink gypsy dress. Celli delighted the audience with a fashion show displaying a number of her custom fashion designs.

The event raised more than $4,600 for student scholarships.

Founded in 1997, The Women of NECC was organized to help Northern Essex in its efforts to raise money for scholarships for needy and deserving students.
