The fashion prodigy, Salvador Caulfield, has finally released his first brand with the launch of his Empire Collection Clothing line. It is based on pictures and art seen and collected via photos and drawings from around the New York City area, including shots from a helicopter ride over Lady Liberty, and atop of the famous Chrysler building. But the pictures aren’t just your typical tourist attractions; Caulfield has street art from the Queens Bridge projects, and hanging shoes photographed in Spanish Harlem.

Now you can get in with the young designer whom the NYC Gazette claimed was to fashion what Van Gogh was to painting, and all you have to do is make a donation on his funding page here.


“I grew up all over so I know the meaning of a country mile, and I learned the meaning of a New York minute. The greatest place to me is New York, and I feel sometimes even the locals that live here are so busy moving in this fast paced environment that they miss out on some of the greatest things this city has to offer. Not just the major landmarks, but the little things. There is a lot of beautiful things in this city that go unnoticed, and I wanted to try to capture those things with my drawings and photos that I would use for my designs. This is 2 years in the making, and now I am ready for the world to see it, and I want your help to launch my Empire brand!”

– Salvador Caulfield on his Empire Collection.

Based on his own photographs and drawings of the great city of New York, Salvador Caulfield wants YOU to help him launch his new clothing line! Caulfield, who moved to back to the states after graduating from fashion school in Paris, France, has had his clothing featured in print magazines, on runways across the globe, and will have some of his designs featured on Citizen IV shirts that will hit stores in the Spring of 2016. His most accomplished feat is having his designs worn by rapper Nas, and the two are set to release a collaboration collection in the near future.

“It has been decades since somebody has been able to capture the heart of our great city in the form of any artistic manner. I would go back to Sinatra singing New York, New York, and here this kid has done it with fashion. New York has never been more alive than it is in the Empire Collection by Salvador Caulfield.”
