Today, we are crushing on Ade Hassan is a London based but Nigerian born entrepreneur. She is the CEO and Founder of Nubian Skin.
She decided to be an entrepreneur like her parents after quitting her banking job.
She created the business, born from her constant Whassle in getting lingerie that would complement her wardrobe and black skin color and decided to go with the idea, knowing that she couldn’t be the only one who had this dilemma.
After posting a photo of her Nubian skin or ‘nude colored’ lingerie on social media in 2014, she was amazed at the amount of attention it caught. She gained one thousand followers in a week and attracted over thirty five thousand notes on tumblr. In less than a month, her followers grew to over twenty thousand.
In an interview, she expressed her shock over the sudden turn of events. “It was insane! Because we didn’t have products to sell yet, we didn’t even have a proper website setup”. In a smart move, she put up a sign up form for people to get more information, as well as receive an official launch email, making one of the smartest decisions she could have made for the business.
Three years later, the brand offers lingerie, hosiery and shoes in four color ways – berry, cinnamon, caramel and cafe au lait.
She not only displayed creativity but also tactfulness in handling the millions of fans into becoming potential customers.
Today, she is a proud owner of Nubian skin lingerie and hosiery through perseverance, hard work and creativity.
