Former WAG Nadia Bartel has been hit with a barrage of criticism after sharing photos of a new activewear set for her fashion label Henne on social media.

The embattled influencer, who had been under fire when a video of her allegedly snorting white powder made headlines back in September, was called out by a host of her followers for failing to be inclusive.

"Loving this pink set," Nadia captioned the event images, taken at Melbourne pilates studio Sum Of Us.

This particular collection - called the 'pink edit' - is for a good cause and done in collaboration with the McGrath Foundation, seeing 20 per cent of sales donated to help support individuals and families affected by breast cancer.

But while the style and cause were praised by many of her followers as "cute" and "amazing", the post was also flooded with comments from followers calling out the 'lack of diversity' in those pictured.

"Just wondering if you also proudly support diversity or only size 6 figures?" one person asked.

"Well I guess I won’t be buying anything since it obviously doesn’t go past size 8," another argued.

Responding directly to one of the comments, Nadia explained: "Hello, there aren’t models pictured here. This is our Henne employees and one women who has suffered from breast cancer and her sister who also has the BRCA gene mutation."

She also added that the women "are sized from size 6 to size 12".

However that didn't stop more people commenting, with one person simply writing the hashtag '#henneisforsize6whitewomen'.

"Is your idea of diversity adding a pregnant woman into the mix?" one person asked.

While another sarcastically wrote: "Well done, we all feel super seen, and makes total business sense."

Nadia Bartel has kept a relatively low profile after she was dropped as ambassador for a number of brands following her alleged 'snorting' incident.

In footage obtained by the Herald Sun, which was reportedly accidentally posted to one of the former WAG’s friend’s Instagram accounts, the 36-year-old appeared to lean over the plate and snort a line of white powder.

Afterwards, Nadia took to her social media account to apologise, writing: “Hi Everyone. I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.

“To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

“I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust.”
