The Empire Team gathers once a year for a full day of refreshing our goals and motivations. To follow the theme of making 2018 bigger and better, we decided to turn that full day into a full weekend. And lucky for us –thanks to Christopher’s aunt’s cabin– our retreat brought us to the gracefully snowy Truckee.
The glittering fluff surrounded our cabin-getaway as sun-rays provided hints of warmth in this wintery weekend. The setting was perfect for us to unwind, relax and focus on what brought us all together in the first place: Empire in the Air.
We discussed how Empire in the Air means more to us than a clothing brand. It is the carrier of the message that all can build their own Empires; it is also a support system to help others achieve that.
Everyone on the team has “day jobs” and various career paths… all while engaging in Empire in the Air. For us, being a part of Empire in the Air allows us to have a creative scapegoat from norms and routine. It allows us to challenge ourselves in mediums we are passionate about.

During the retreat, we pledged to take more risks this year through our products and events while staying true to our values and community-building.
We are reaching for Empire in the Air from the ground up
