Ade's Diary: May 2015

A look into the diary of Ade Hassan, Founder of Nubian Skin

ADE'S DIARY: MAY

I can’t believe it’s the end of May already.  Where has the time gone?  It’s been an incredibly eventful 2015 so far.  Starting off with being featured in the January Issue of O Magazine!

We’ve been working incredibly hard, and it’s starting to bear fruit.  The beginning of the year was taken up with the trade show circuit, taking me from London to Paris and then New York.  It was a new experience, but I met lots of incredibly people in the business, and also a lot of great retailers, so continue to watch this space for exciting news!

One of the most exciting things that has happened this year has been the growth of our retailer partnerships.  We are now stocked in some amazing retailers, and the list continues to grow: Fenwick Bond Street (UK), ASOS.com (International), Mytights.com (UK), Jumia (Nigeria), Busted Bra Shop (US), Blue Stockings Boutique (US), Nubian Hueman (US) and Gift Ko (US).  I have met some amazing buyers who are really passionate about being able to provide skin-tone lingerie and hosiery to their customers regardless of colour, and I'm so grateful.

I'm always humbled by the love and support Nubian Skin is receiving in our mission of "Redefining Nude".  We got to have a chat with NU People Magazine, an amazing digital magazine, which featured us in their April issue (check out my tights in the picture ;)).  Here's looking forward to an even more exciting June!
