She may have recently separated from her retired AFL star husband Jimmy Bartel, but Nadia Bartel (née Coppolino) won’t spend the rest of her days simply known as a ‘former WAG’.
The 34-year-old businesswoman’s successful online clothing store and fashion range are continuing to flourish despite her turbulent personal life.
Nadia runs the popular webstore The Connection with her sister, and she is also the creative director of her own brand, Henne.

Nadia’s passion for fashion is no secret, as the mother-of-two has operated her own blog, Chronicles of Nadia, for several years.
She previously wrote on her blog about launching The Connection, saying that customers will find a thoughtfully ‘curated’ selection of clothing.
‘You will also find more of a curated edit,’ Nadia wrote.
‘That means you will find a smaller selection of pieces, these are pieces that we have spent hours to sort through and hand pick the absolute best of the best, because we know that you don’t have the time, and there is nothing worse than having a bunch of pieces in your wardrobe that don’t work together.’

Meanwhile, Nadia made her first public appearance this week, after announcing her shock split from former AFL star Jimmy, 35, earlier this month.
The 34-year-old fashion blogger attended the ‘Women Driving Change’ event hosted by Mercedes-Benz at the Port Melbourne Yacht Club on Wednesday.
According to guests, the former WAG said that her two children were her ‘number one priority’ moving forward.

‘Everything comes second to that,’ she said.
‘I still want to have goals. I’m passionate about what I do, and I want my children to look up to that, and see mum is doing something she’s passionate about.’
Nadia is said to be ‘bracing herself’ for more details of her husband’s private life to be made public in the coming weeks.
According to The Herald Sun, she is preparing for the worst amid rumours Jimmy’s new London-based Australian girlfriend is enjoying her notoriety and wants to ‘make headlines’.
Lauren Mand, who recently flew to Melbourne, has reportedly ‘been referring to Jimmy as her boyfriend’ despite the fact he is married with two children.
