Nigerian Designer And Founder Of Nubian Skin, Ade Hassan Awarded An MBE From The Queen OF England For Her Inclusive Underwear Line

Ade Hassan, the creator of Nubian Skin has received one of Britain's highest honors for her contribution to the fashion industry.

Ade Hassan, the innovator behind the one-of-a-kind under garment line, Nubian Skin is now a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

The designer—who created Nubian Skin in 2014 in response to the lack of truly “nude” underwear and bras available to black and brown girls—was awarded the honor for her indelible contribution to the fashion industry. She accepted the award last week with her parents by her side.

“When you take Ijebu to Buckingham Palace,” wrote the designer in an Instagram post.

“As the owner of a small, independent brand it is an incredible validation of my goal of ‘Empowering Women. Embracing our Colour’ to receive this Honour, said the designer in a statement on the Nubian Skin blog.”I feel so fortunate and am very grateful for all the people who have supported my vision and Nubian Skin and made it what is today.”

Hassan was also recently named one of Ebony’s Power 100 entrepreneurs.

Congrats to the designer for receiving the honor, and also for being a trailblazer in the fashion industry.
