Nubian Skin is pleased to announce that Ade Hassan, Founder and Director of Nubian Skin, has been awarded an MBE for her services to fashion. Ade attended the investiture ceremony this week, where His Royal Highness Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, bestowed the honour upon her.
The award was made in recognition of Ade’s commitment to her mission to redefine nude through her brand Nubian Skin, and the impact she has consequently made on the fashion industry. On the honour, Ade said: “I really am so humbled and incredibly grateful to be receiving this. It’s not something I could ever have imagined.”
After years of development, Ade created Nubian Skin in 2013 and launched the brand in late 2014. Frustrated by the lack of diversity in nude lingerie and hosiery, she decided to create something she was unable to find and the brand launched with astounding support from women all over the world. Ade has continued to develop the brand with successful additional lines added alongside the original nude lingerie and hosiery, and Nubian Skin is now stocked in leading department stores and boutiques in nine countries over four continents.
Speaking about this award, Ade said: “As the owner of a small, independent brand it is an incredible validation of my goal of ‘Empowering Women. Embracing our Colour’ to receive this Honour. I feel so fortunate and am very grateful for all the people who have supported my vision and Nubian Skin and made it what is today.”
