I told you this year will be different in the sense of the type of posts that I will be writing and this one will be no different as I speak about my favourite design company of the moment!
Nubian Skin are a fairly recent start up underwear brand that is redefining the idea of 'nude' and addressing the underwear needs of women of colour worldwide! They have been seen recently displaying their designs at Salon De la Lingerie in Paris(a major lingerie and swimwear trade show), and are now selling on ASOS!
I must admit, when I first heard of this brand and what they were doing for the underwear sector, it almost seemed like a no-brainer to what they were doing and a surprise that no one had thought of it before them! I'm so glad that they've addressed a need in the market that has been ongoing for years now. Their tag line of Redefining Nude really represents what their products do and alongside the practical everyday nude pants and bras, it's nice to see a variety of lacy numbers as well as a range of actual skin coloured hosiery! Something else that I thought was really cool was the matching of their underwear shades to some popular but diverse makeup brands, so you have a rough estimation of the shade before you buy!
With my dreams of working in the lingerie industry, knowing that there are companies like this who are equally conscious of what the market needs and successful at getting it right, makes me excited for the future!
I will definitely be supporting the brand, in fact I have my items in my ASOS basket as I write this! I hope that you will too and spread the word!!!
