Our apparel carries the message that everyone can build their own Empires.
We strive to inspire others to stick their heads at cloud-level & turn dreams into reality.

Empire in the Air began as a solo-project by ChiChai when she was a freshman at San Jose State University in California. She would sporadically design and sell t-shirts from her dorm.


It wasn't until her last year of college in 2013 when Empire in the Air formed a team and a stronger foundation. Beginning then -- with Chris, Sam, Ray, and Aiko -- Empire in the Air became the brand you know today.

We are a streetwear brand who 1) designs apparel carrying the message "you can build your own empire too" & 2) hosts events and collaborates with other organizations to support San Francisco Bay Area communities.
