"Rise & Fall of a Phoenix"

These beautiful one-of-a-kind garments were designed by Leyla Salvade (pictured). Using fine French silks and empty bullet casings found in the dessert of Phoenix, Arizona, Leyla illustrates an inspiration and tells the story of "The Rise and Fall of a Phoenix" -- influenced by the biblical story of the Tower of Babel.  

Leyla is a multifaceted artist who recently graduated from Central Saint Martin's College in London, with a degree in Fashion Textiles.  Currently, Leyla is preparing to embark on her next adventure in Los Angeles, CA where she will further her creative talents at FIDM and pursue a career in Event Planning and Public Relations.  To see more of Leyla's work and keep up with her as she begins her latest journey visit her website:  

Thank you Leyla for sharing your work and story with us!
