AFL’s Tomas Bugg launches Kooshn fashion accessories

‘I don’t want football to be the only highlight of my life’: AFL star Tomas Bugg reveals the REAL reason he got into fashion and stayed away from the limelight festivals










Most young sports stars are known to indulge in the party life during their off-season.

But AFL star Tomas Bugg is getting into the fashion accessories business with his brand Kooshn.

“I’m motivated to learn and keep improving and that’s why I don’t want football to be the only highlight of my life,” the 24-year-old told The Daily Telegraph.

“Instead of going out to party, working on Kooshn actually helps my brain stay focused and motivated for football,” he told the publication, adding that football will always be his number one priority.

The Melbourne Demons star is co-owner of the business, which he started with his best friend.

They produce a giant water and weather resistant cushion that doubles as a carry bag.

“I work hard because I want to settle down and change the stereotype some people may have of footballers,” he said.

Even Tomas’ AFL teammates Christian Petracca, Jonny Patton and Stephen Coniglio joined in the promotional action by sharing snaps on their social media with the prop.

“Everyone thinks the footballers have succeeded, but it really comes down to hard work,” he added.

Earlier in the year he received a six-week suspension for hitting Sydney Swan player Callum Mills.

“I accept full responsibility for my actions,” he said in a news.com.au report.

“I look forward to working over the next six weeks and earning back the respect of my club, my players and everyone in the wider community,” he added.
