Who Is Ubah Hassan?
Ubah Hassan is a 30-year-old model and was born in Somalia. She had modeled for famous international designers like Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Rachel Roy and Gucci. She has also been gracing several publications such as Vogue Italy, Allure and Arise Magazine.
As a child, Ubah fled her war-torn country to Kenya along with her father and brother while her mother and sister went to Ethiopia. Her family was separated for seven years until they got reunited in Canada when she migrated.
Ubah Hassan’s Rise To Fame
The Somali-born beauty was scouted in a park in Canada by a photographer. She was signed with Click Model Management in New York City. Since then, she started doing photo shoots and fashion runway catwalks.
Now signed under Supreme Management and based in New York, Ubah is popular for her nationwide campaigns. But despite her rise to popularity, she told she was grateful for receiving the biggest break from one of the fashion industry’s key player, Ralph Lauren. Back in 2009, she was the face of Ralph Lauren’s Spring/Summer campaign.
She also graced the July 2008 all Black Issue of Italian Vogue shot by Steven Meisel and again, in the January 2009 issue, shot by Bruce Weber.
