Nubian Skin is the first and largest skin tone hosiery and lingerie brand for the brown and black woman. Based in the U.K., the brand was founded by a young black woman, Ade Hassan who took initiative in reinventing or rather, expanding on the wider range of what is, the style of “nude”. I recall learning from a class I once took at CUNY City College of New York on Race & Beauty, in which my professor spoke on the initial availability of “nude”, (a style in which a product, or item of clothing is made to blend with one’s skin color) being much lighter and only available in that light tone– unavailable in the complexion of any brown or black skin. Especially for this reason and for reasons of supporting empowerment and recognition of women of all skin tones, I am so honored to have collaborated with Nubian Skin on a promotional feature for their new lace collection.
