Ade Hassan, 31, creator of Nubian Skin, is revolutionizing lingerie game
Move over Vicky/Victoria. Ade is in the building.
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.
Ade Hassan’s Top Three Entrepreneurial Hacks For Budding Bawse Chicks:

(1) Stand on a very solid idea. “It’s really important to research your idea to make sure that whatever it is, it’s valid. Make sure you really believe in the idea especially if you’re working in another job. If you’re up at 4:00 a.m. or 2:00 a.m. working on this, then you want to believe in it.”

(2) Be willing to work really, really hard. “Everybody who is going to start something anticipates that it’s going to be difficult, and that it’s going to be hard, but it will be so much more difficult and so much harder than you can prepare yourself for.”
(3) Have faith in yourself and surround yourself with positive people. “Because if you don’t believe in yourself, then who will?”
