All it took was one jacket for Kristin Juszczyk, the wife of San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk to gain a following and internet acclaim. Well, really, all it took was Taylor Swift. The pop sensation showed up to the Chiefs-Dolphins wild-card game in a Kristin Juszczyk original: a chic jacket, featuring Travis Kelce’s name and number, made by the aspiring designer.
It wasn’t the first time she had made custom gear for an NFL game day. She does it all the time for herself, and others, too. Back in December, she made a custom Green Bay Packers vest for Simone Biles to sport in support of her husband, Jonathan Owens.
Now, with her name on the map, other stars are looking to her for sleek game day garments. Among them are model and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. The 31-year-old, who is engaged to 49ers star running back Christian McCaffrey, has turned to Juszczyk for her design expertise ahead of the 49ers Packers game on Saturday, Jan. 20.
The crafty and skilled Juszczyk has proven herself capable of making some impressive 49ers gear. As the wife of a player on the team, she has made several pieces for herself to sport at the games, including a puffer jacket much like the one she made for Swift.
Culpo shared a snap to her Instagram story on Jan. 17, teasing the piece in process. All we know is, if it’s anything like Swift’s, it’s sure to turn heads.
