We first heard about story of Nubian Skin here in 2013 when it was just Ade and her ideas and concepts....a mere two years later, the young lady is now filthy rich and her brand has been picked up by upscale retailer Nordstrom's!

Over the last few months, many of us have seen and been excited by the photos circulating the web from Nubian Skin, the UK-based retailer that served up black-girl realness for “nude” bras, panties and hosiery. Celebs like Kerry Washington and Thandie Newtonhave even tweeted about it.
The company is the brainchild of 31-year-old Ade Hassan, a Nigerian-born Londoner who saw a huge gap and filled it, and by the way, may have revolutionized the panty game.
Hassan, who came up with the Nubian Skin concept in 2011, but just left her full-time finance job in November, spoke with HelloBeautiful to talk about being a boss and what drove her to do what she does.

I honestly cannot believe that life could be so cruel to take an amazing young man away at such a young age. But who are we to say why?
