As women of color, we are all aware that “nude” doesn’t really mean nude. Nude colored clothing, nail polishes and lingerie reflect European beauty ideals and quite frankly, leave women of color out. But don’t fret because the “nude” problem has finally been addressed, thanks to Ade Hassan, founder of Nubian Skin.
Nubian Skin is a line of lingerie and hosiery focused on providing the essential underwear needs of women of color. Hassan was inspired by super model Iman’s line of cosmetics and Eunice W. Johnson’s line Fashion Fair to create her own place in the undergarment market. The line is headquartered in London, but delivers worldwide and looks forward to growing the company’s offering and expanding its reach.
