Established in 2010 by Jessica Krupa, Krupa Couture is a designer swimwear label that features timeless and sophisticated swimwear crafted from the finest fabric and notions available to the swimwear market. After discovering a gap in the swimwear market for designer swimwear that is well-tailored, cup sized, and fashionable, Jessica has created swimwear that balances function with couture elements.
Jessica knows swimwear and understands a women’s body. She grew up immersed in the vibrant beach culture of the American east coast and developed a drive for fashion early in life. At the age of 16, she attended a local trade school for fashion design and merchandising while still attending high school courses. Her interest in fashion design blossomed and lead her to New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, where Jessica studied women’s wear and specialized in intimate apparel and swimwear. An eye-opening year abroad at FIT’s sister college; Polimoda’s School of Design in Florence, Italy; helped Jessica sharpen her design skills and divulge into travel opportunities offered to international trade shows and European fashion- helping her understand how to market and produce high-end and couture apparel.
Jessica graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts at FIT, and worked several years in the NYC’s thriving fashion industry as a private label designer. During an impromptu and research trip to the islands of Brazil, Jessica was inspired by local designers and independent boutiques that manufactured one-of-a-kind pieces from their own studios. Jessica knew that creating her own label under her own vision was something she always wanted to do, and she knew that she had the right tools to do so.
In the emerging European fashion capital of Berlin, Germany, Jessica crafted Krupa Couture’s business plan at the Technical University of Berlin after being awarded the CBYX scholarship for young professionals. Here, she broke in to the European market with her label and was quickly published as a “label to watch” in several leading trade magazines, such as Linie International, Textilwirtschaft, and Proud magazine.
After gaining brand recognition throughout Europe, Jessica moved back to the US to work in NYC. She was awarded at Charleston’s Emerging Designer: East competition and has been inducted into the Hall of Excellence at her former art school. She continues to design new swimwear with high quality fabrics, linings and notions imported from fine European goods, and strives to keep all production in the USA.
