Episode 84: How Nubian Skin Founder Ade Hassan Redefined What Nude Means For Women of Color

Today in the guest chair we have Ade Hassan. Ade is the founder and director of lingerie brand Nubian Skin. Frustrated by the lack of skin-tone choices to go with her ever-expanding wardrobe, Ade decided it was time for ‘a different kind of nude’. She knew that there were lots of women out there like her who needed the same thing. Nubian Skin has redefined what “nude” means, offering essentials in different colors with current pieces include bras, underwear, hosiery, and shoes.

When Ade set out to create skin-tone choices that actually matched her skin tone, she had no idea the level of interest she would generate. Today, celebrity-favorite Nubian Skin is stocked in leading stores such as Asos, Nordstroms and she even styled the Queen Bey herself, Beyoncé and dancers for the Formation World Tour as well as the cast of the blockbuster film Hidden Figures.

On today’s episode, Ade shares how she transitioned from a career in finance to creating an impactful and highly sought after brand.

Hi! I’m Nicaila, the Creator and Host of the Side Hustle Pro Podcast. I started Side Hustle Pro when I was a side hustler myself. I was a digital marketer at NPR by day, side hustler by night. Through the powerful stories shared on this show and the courage to launch my own initiatives, I was able to quit my own job and go full time with Side Hustle Pro.
