Joan Jett has decided to take on a new endeavor in fashion!
According to Nymag.com, Jett has been working with Tripp NYC designers Daang and Ray Goodman to create a clothing line that will be sold in Hot Topic stores.
The 56-year-old American rocker has been known for her own unique style with her black punk hairstyle and dark make-up. For years, she said she has been thinking of doing something in fashion, but never got around to doing it.
“I’ve talked about doing something like this over the years but nothing ever came to fruition. Daang and Ray really get my styles and I didn’t have to do the nuts and bolts of the design,” Jett told Women’s Wear Daily. “They take my essence and translate my vibe and we go from there.”

Hot Topic has 658 stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, along with their online site, and Jett said she is excited to launch her very first clothing line there. All of her items are reasonably priced and range from $32.50- $64.50.
“I’ve known about Hot Topic for years and years because on the road there are very few places in certain areas of the country where you can find kind of rock ’n’ roll clothes. And Tripp is kind of famous in New York for catering to that rock ’n’ roll downtown, edgy kind of vibe,” she said.
