YouTuber Jessie Paege has announced a collaboration with American retail chain Hot Topic. In a video posted to her channel, the 19-year-old revealed that she will launch a clothing line that will be made available on HotTopic.com and in select stores on August 27th.
Paege‘s merchandise will include a variety of T-shirts and buttons. If they do well upon release, the collection could expand to include other items.
To go along with the launch, Paege will hold a meet-and-greet at the Hollywood Hot Topic. According to the official Hot Topic social media pages, more details about the meet-and-greet will be announced soon.
On Twitter, Paege shared that this collaboration is “the biggest announcement” of her life because she has a strong attachment and history with the brand, which sells merchandise of her favorite things in pop culture, including Twenty One Pilots, Pokemon, anime and cartoons.
The star said that for so long, she felt ashamed of her interests, and it wasn’t until she discovered Hot Topic that she finally felt “truly represented.”
“It reminded me that my alternative interests was not something I should be ashamed of.”
