ChiChai launched the very first Empire in the Air tee in 2010 from her college dorm.
A decade later and now Empire in the Air is a team of creatives producing sky-high inspired products and events highlighting the Bay Area community.
a virtual & in-person celebration of 10 years since our first tee launched
From Thursday, 9/10 to Sunday, 9/20
We shared NEW GOODS, ARTWORK & EVENTS with online and [limited] in-person availability to accommodate for shelter-in-place and social-distancing.
While we celebrated our brand with our products and events, we also shared our pop-up shop and online store to:
feature local BIPOC brands & artists
serve as a pick-up & shop location for merch of grassroots org San Jose Strong
organize In Place, an art show fundraising for mutual aid collective Community Got Us who we were able to raise over $700 for
This week-long pop-up shop was truly a testament of community by community and for community. So many of our friends supported us by lending us their talents in hosting events or performing.
