Jessica Krupa

Jessica Krupa is a New York City-based design entrepreneur and professor of design focusing on swimwear and intimate apparel. She has over 15 years of experience creating swimwear and intimate apparel collections for Fortune 500 Enterprises, such as Victoria’s Secret and Li & Fung, and has been awarded a bra design patent for innovation during her tenure at VS.

Jessica previously ran a luxury swimwear company for 10 years called Krupa Couture Swim before launching her new brand Panty Promise. In 2020, Jessica identified the need for better panty options for women without risking their feminine wellness and was driven to solve this. She consulted with top NY Gynecologist Dr. Alyssa Dweck to make her vision come to life and took a year developing the best fabric and design, thus creating the first seamless certified organic cotton panty imported from a high-end mill in Italy. Jessica's design eliminates pesky panty lines and uncomfortable seams, like traditional cotton panties, resulting in a smooth and ultra-comfortable look and feel. Her design is Utility Patent Pending in the USA, Canada, EU and UK to keep the innovation and design protected against knockoffs.

Throughout her career, Jessica has been the receipt of several distinguished awards including Charleston’s Emerging Designer: East Competition, a Fulbright Scholarship called CBYX for Young Professionals, and has been inducted into the Hall of Excellence at OCVTS (Ocean County Vocational Technical School). In 2023 Jessica's brand, Panty Promise, won the New Brand Audience award during the Curve Trade Show's Pitch off Competition. Jessica's mission has always been to learn anything and everything about swimwear and lingerie design to make women of all shapes and sizes feel sexy, sophisticated and confident.

We are thrilled to have Jessica teaching at UoF where she shares her expertise in our swimwear design and product development lessons.
