The creative force behind LeiVanKash Jewellery is London-based designer Leila Kashanipour.
After finishing her foundation year, Leila went on to complete her BA in Jewellery Design from the prestigious Central Saint Martins in 2009, and later received her Diploma in Diamond Grading by attending London’s Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
During her first year of university Leila had already started stocking boutiques in London and Dubai with her unique jewellery. In her second year a collaboration with the fashion house Eskandar was born and continues to this very day, with LeiVanKash designing exclusive collections of hand made bespoke rings & necklaces from her Persepolis collection for Eskandar’s flagships stores in London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Milan.
After continuing to work for jewellery giants Suzanne Syz in Geneva, Asprey and the great Stephen Webster in London, Leila decided to launch LeiVanKash Jewellery in January 2011. The brand’s eclectic yet elegant influences of Leila’s bountiful Persian heritage, her love of 70’s style, glam rock & and mystical traits of the natural world have drawn a cult following of celebrities such as Olivia Palermo, Florence Welch, Leona Lewis, Ellie Goulding, Ana Beatriz Barros, Rita Ora and Pixie Lott.
LeiVanKash has already been featured on BBC, Reuters as well as in international media such as The Financial Times, Vogue, Elle, Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia, and continues its assault into the fashion world…ROCK ON!!!
