Nadia Bartel shows off her abs as she works out at the gym following her white powder scandal

She has kept a low-profile since her white powder scandal back in September.

And it appears that Nadia Bartel has been enjoying a healthy and busy lifestyle in the weeks since the drama.

The mother-of-two was back in the gym on Tuesday for a gruelling workout.

It comes after Nadia was recently slammed for ‘lack of diversity’ in her latest fashion campaign.  

The designer attempted to display her philanthropic side last week by collaborating with breast cancer charity McGrath Foundation to launch an all-pink activewear line from her fashion brand Henne.

Unfortunately, Nadia’s charitable efforts have been marred by criticism on social media about the ‘lack of diversity’ in photos promoting the range.

Nadia shared a gallery of photos to Instagram on Friday of herself and her Henne colleagues, all of whom are white and slim, attending an outdoor Pilates session. 

She was immediately called out for failing to represent diverse bodies in the photos.

One person commented below the post: ‘So no inclusivity in your marketing? Just skinny white women. Lol.’

Several people said they wouldn’t be buying items from Nadia’s new range because the photos suggested the designs weren’t meant to be worn by ‘women over size 8’.

One critic questioned why the two women who looked slightly larger than the others were both pictured wearing T-shirts rather than skimpy crop tops.

Nadia eventually responded to one of the negative comments, explaining: ‘Hello, there aren’t models pictured here.’

The mother of two shared a screenshot from a podcast she was listening to called The Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett.

The episode in question featured as its guest Mo Gawdat, the author of Solve Me Happy, a book about ‘creating and maintaining happiness’.

‘I really enjoyed this episode,’ the Henne fashion designer wrote in the caption.

‘It’s a good one to shift mindset. All about perspective and finding happiness.’ 

Caught on camera: The video showed Nadia snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate. She and three other women were each fined $5,452 after footage of the party was accidentally posted on Instagram by Ellie

It was the first time Nadia had offered a glimpse into her mental state since apologising for her snorting scandal on September 3. 

Her entire world fell apart two months ago when she was caught breaking Melbourne’s Covid lockdown to attend an illegal party with several friends.

Damning footage from the gathering, which her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson posted online by mistake, showed her snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate.

While she wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting, the video nonetheless caused irreparable damage to her brand and she was dropped by major sponsors. 

Apology: Just 24 hours after the video leaked, Nadia issued a grovelling apology on Instagram. '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,' she wrote in an Instagram post
