Most of us are gearing up for the first game of the season on Sunday. We have our crock pots ready, tortilla chips in stock and our jerseys are dry-cleaned. There’s nothing like the first game of the year for a true Pittsburgher. Kiya Tomlin is no stranger to the world of football as the wife of head coach, Mike Tomlin, but the world of fashion is where her heart lies.
Bringing comfortable and chic styles to our Steel City, Tomlin launched her first line Uptown Sweats in the fall of 2014 and now she’s back with a whole new look. As a native Pittsburgher, dressing for Steeler Sundays typically mean a pair of leggings, a ponytail and an over-sized jersey, not our most stylish look. Finally football is made fashionable. Score the latest football fashions with Tomlin’s latest “Game Day” collection inspired by the Pittsburgh Steelers, of course.
“MY BACKGROUND IN CUSTOM DESIGN INSPIRES ME TO DESIGN FOR A VARIETY OF FIGURES. MY EXPERIENCE AS A WOMAN OF MANY ROLES DRIVES THE DIRECTION AND FUNCTIONALITY OF MY DESIGNS. BY COMBINING THESE INSPIRATIONS, I CAN CREATE COMFORTABLE CLOTHES THAT INSPIRE CONFIDENCE. THAT CONFIDENCE IS WHAT MAKES A WOMAN TRULY BEAUTIFUL”
– KIYA TOMLIN, DESIGNER
