Nour Najem, born and raised in Beirut, graduated in fashion design from ESMOD Beirut in 2012. Throughout her career, she has interned at several Lebanese designers, such as Elie Saab, Rabih Kayrouz and Caroline Seikaly.
She launched her eponymous fashion label in the spring of 2013.
Nour adresses 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; artisanal crafts and the know-how 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 whith the hope of empowering women who come from underprivileged backgrounds.
Nour is commited to having a sustainable, reliable and responsible company, and this engagement is part of the brands’ codes. In December 2014, Nour was selected by the STARCH foundation, the emerging talents incubator, to showcase and highlight her talent.
