Nubian Skin

Inclusive lingerie brand

Awarded the MBE at Buckingham Palace in 2017 for her impact on the fashion industry, Ade Hassan launched Nubian Skin to create a more inclusive lingerie brand. Her goal is to offer “a different kind of nude”, so the collection features four skin tones in a range of 16 sizes from A-E cups. Jourdan Dunn, Lizzo and Winnie Harlow are just a few of the label’s celebrity fans.
