Illustrator. Story Teller. Mountain girl. Nourie Flayhan’s Instagram biography summarises her whimsical spirit and effortless creativity in three simple points. She’s known for her powerful illustrations, which convey messages of diversity, female empowerment and champion the importance of heritage and culture; all with eccentric detail, punchy colours and her signature ‘four eyes’ stamp. It’s no surprise she’s been snapped up by Gucci as its globe-trotting poster girl for cool. While in Dubai, Nourie dropped by at The Modist HQ to share how she loves to incorporate her love of nature into her wardrobe, and how she breathes new life into florals for summer.
