Filipino designer Brian Leyva passed away this morning.

Brian Leyva

According a mutual friend, he was mugged on Monday night after going to the gym and his
attacker shot him in the head.

For an iPhone.

Brian (along with other Filipino designers)  was commissioned by Ballet Philippines to dress Barbie for an auction benefit recently.

This isn't the first time a Filipino fashion designer suffered a tragic, violent death. Some of you might remember what happened to Ernest Santiago, Mel Vergel de Dios and Caloy Badidoy. 

RIP, Brian Leyva.
