49ers WAG Kristin Juszczyk describes Taylor Swift wearing her design as a ‘pinch me moment’ and claims the popstar ‘single handedly catapulted my career’
San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk’s wife, Kristin Juszczyk, struggled with the ‘pinch me moment’ when Brittany Mahomes and Taylor Swift wore jackets she made.
Kristin’s designs went viral last month after the pop star wore a custom bomber jacket emblazoned with boyfriend Travis Kelce’s jersey number and name that the Niners WAG designed for the Kansas City Chiefs’ wild-card round clash against the Miami Dolphins .
And Juszczyk sat down for an interview with the Today Show on Thursday to discuss the career-launching moment.
“Brittany texted me and she said, ‘Hey, can you send me a video of Taylor’s jacket?’ And I was like, “Wait, is there a possibility that the guys are both wearing these?” And she said, ‘Yes, we carry it,'” Juszczyk said. ‘It was just such a pinch me moment. I mean, it was just amazing.’
“She single-handedly catapulted my career,” Juszczyk continued, speaking of Swift.

‘I’ve been at this for years. When I saw her walking out in that jacket, it just brought me to tears.’
Juszczyk’s also recently released her first official design following her licensing deal with the NFL.
The 29-year-old debuted her first piece of official NFL-licensed apparel on Wednesday, sharing a video of a special puffer jacket designed to commemorate Sunday’s big game between the 49ers and the Chiefs in Las Vegas.
The jacket was created as a nod to the game’s designated color palette. It’s padded with plum-colored fabric and a metallic lilac lining with the number 58 – denoting this week’s Super Bowl edition – in a purple and red marble print.
It also bears the Super Bowl LVIII insignia on the left corner of the chest as Kristin’s first use of NFL marks and commemorates the league’s showdown with the two teams’ names and date of the game embroidered on the lower right corner.

Super Bowl star Kyle Juszczyk recently said he hopes his wife will meet Swift at the game.
“It was just kind of this year that she started making clothes for different celebrities and whatnot,” Juszczyk said.
‘I think Simone Biles was the first one. And then Deebo (Samuel) wore the puffer jacket from the Brock (Purdy) jersey to our Washington game and that’s when things really started to pick up.’
“Of course, once Taylor Swift wore a jacket here, which really blew up, Taylor Lautner also that weekend, it really just took off.”
