Nour Najem, born and raised in Beirut, graduated in fashion design from ESMOD Beirut in 2012. Throughout her career, she has interned with Lebanese designers, including Elie Saab, Rabih Kayrouz and Caroline Seikaly. She launched her eponymous fashion label in the spring of 2013.
Nour addresses the modern and independent woman through fluid lines, luscious fabrics, and intricate details. She combines strict geometry and architecture all the while being anchored in her oriental heritage. She is inspired by a wide range of traditional artistry and artisanal crafts that she applies to her designs.
In 2014, Nour launched the Kenzah foundation, in parallel to her luxury fashion brand. Through this NGO, she works with talented artisans, using overlooked craftsmanship with the hope of empowering women who come from underprivileged backgrounds.
