By now, you know Kristin Juszczyk’s name. The clothing designer made headlines earlier this year when superstar Taylor Swift wore a custom Juszczyk creation—an incredible red puffer coat—to the Jan. 13 game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins.
Since then, Juszczyk, who is married to 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, has created unique and fabulous pieces for other celebs like Olivia Culpo, Simone Biles and Taylor Lautner. And in late January, Juszczyk signed a licensing deal with the NFL, meaning she is permitted to use the official NFL logo in her designs.
Now, Juszczyk is using her platform (and skills!) for good, as she is auctioning off her first officially licensed NFL piece of gear, a Super Bowl-themed puffer vest, for charity. The garment is a large unisex custom puffer vest featuring a large “58” across the chest and back. Smaller details include stitching on the front featuring the Super Bowl LVIII opponents, the Chiefs and 49ers, along with the date of the Big Game.
The auction began this afternoon and closes on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 11:59 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a cause near and dear to Juszczyk’s heart, as her mother died of the disease.
“I’m gonna donate all proceeds to the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” she told TODAY of the charitable auction. “... I just need to give back in some way.”
At press time, the current bid is $12,500.
