Mile5tone – EITA Team Highlight: Mia

To celebrate our 5 years in the game, we are throwing an anniversary party and we want you to be a part of it! For the past 5 years, Empire in the Air has taken part of the Bay Area community through its clothing and events. We strongly believe that we’ve made it thus far because of the love from our supporters. Mile5tone, our 5 year anniversary party, will take place on June 3 in Berkeley, CA. Save the date and purchase your tickets here!

Leading up to June 3, we will be highlighting our vendors and different members of the Empire in the Air team. Next up we have Mia@Empire!


What do you do for Empire in the Air?
I started off working for Empire through a social media project at SJSU. I asked Francesca if I could take over Empire’s social media channels and create a campaign with my group for the next six weeks. During that time I created the hashtag #MyEmpireInTheAir which has been such an integral part of Empire since then! After graduating in 2016, I was asked to join the team for social media and have been part of it since.

From social media, I’ve branched into creating monthly playlists which you can find on Soundcloud and Spotify and have branched out even more to product design.



What is your favorite moment working with Empire in the Air?
There have been tons of fun moments with the Empire team! Every time we’re together it’s a fun time. Whether it be meetings on Google Hangout, tabling at an event, or hosting an event, we’re always laughing and getting down to business. Some of my favorite things about Empire however are that we are able to take on whatever projects we want. I wanted to create playlists every month and went ahead and did it. I wanted to do product design and was able to go ahead and do that too. The ability to grow your empire while inspiring others is my favorite thing about working with Empire.



What is your favorite Empire piece?
Oooh, my favorite Empire piece would have to be the Rocketeer bomber jacket. I told Francesca that I wanted to help with product design and the Public Figures collection was the first that I really really got to help with designing. I had drawn out pictures in my Moleskin of what I think the different patches could look like and when Francesca saw my notes she drew them out and I was in awe at how she brought my dinky drawings to life! I wear the jacket with pride knowing that I was able to help put it together!

Why are you excited for Mile5tone?
I’m excited for Mile5tone because this is an opportunity to celebrate Empire’s accomplishments and well.. milestones since its beginnings. It’s the chance for us to celebrate with those who have helped Empire get to where we’re at today. It’s crazy to think about how many events, communities, collections, etc that have come together these last five years. I hope to see you there 🙂

What do you wish to see for Empire in the Air the next 5 years?
In the next five years, I really hope to see Empire in its own space! I think this is everyone on the team’s goal for the brand. We host so many events in the year as it is, that to have a place of our own to host them in would be a dream. Empire on its own embodies the true power of an idea. I know Francesca always day dreams of what this space/office would look like and I hope that this comes true in the next 5 years! ❤


Hope to see you at our Mile5tone, five year anniversary party on June 3rd, 11-3pm in Berkeley!
