According to reports, the award was made in recognition of Hassan’s commitment to her mission to redefine nude through her brand, and the impact she has consequently made on the fashion industry.
Ade Hassan from Ogun state, created Nubian Skin in 2013 and launched the brand in late 2014.
According to her, she decided to create something after being frustrated by the lack of diversity in nude lingerie and hosiery.
Hassan has continued to develop the brand with successful additional lines added alongside the original nude lingerie and hosiery.
According to reports, Nubian Skin is stocked in leading department stores and boutiques in nine countries over four continents, with further online sales enabling the brand to reach more consumers than ever.
