Because every skin tone deserves support
When it comes to diversity, the fashion world, as a whole, still has a long way to go, especially when it comes to ethnic diversity.
But thankfully, two designers are taking the lead to solve one of the most infuriating problems women of colour face: shopping for underwear.
Both Nubian Skin, launched by Ade Hassan in 2014, and D.Bleu.Bedazzled, created by Destiny Blue, were born out of a frustration with not being able to find skin-toned underwear to match their complexion.
But now, the pair have joined forces to deliver a range of beautifully embellished lingerie to suit all. From deeper complexions to super-pale skin, the range offers up an inclusive selection of nude bras, bottoms and hosiery.
The designers, who have both been integral to diversifying nudes-for-all, showcased their pieces at a presentation during London Fashion Week on Tuesday 21 February.
Held at the Sanderson Hotel, models and dancers of all skin tones paraded in the crystal-laden garments which already boast a long list of A-list fans including Beyonce, Jourdan Dunn, Kate Upton and Leomie Anderson.
