Selena Gomez debuts new youthful line for Adidas... but is stopped by protesters for sweatshop worker's rights


Her own style: The 20-year-old drew inspiration from her own laid-back style

She's celebrating her newest clothing collection, but not without a bit of controversy.
A New York city fashion show for Selena Gomez' collaboration with Adidas' streetwear Neo label was nearly put to a halt as protesters handed out pamphlets and tried to storm the stage on Wednesday.
Dressed in a grey and pink tee with skinny black trousers and, of course, a pair of black and pink Adidas trainers, the 20-year-old singer stood on stage as models paraded some of her stylish designs.

Controversial: The walkway was interrupted by protesters from the group United Students Against Sweatshops

The clothes, mostly in sunny yellow, bright pink and navy, were more surf than sport, which is Adidas' normal niche.
The trends on tap for this fall include denim shorts, Bermudas, slouchy sweats and T-shirts that read off youthful prose such as 'Pirate Love.'
There were also a few graffiti prints sprinkled in, and some varsity jackets.

Branching out: The former Disney star also has an affordable clothing line at Kmart

But midway through the show there was a brief interruption by protesters who were calling out against the label's purported use of illegal garment workers.
Outside about a dozen members of the group United Students Against Sweatshops carried a sign that read, 'Selena: Don't be an ambassador for sweatshops.'
The group had camped outside the event and some tried to enter and hand out leaflets, but were quickly escorted by security.

Putting on a show: The group claims Adidas uses sweatshop labour

According to the group, the pamphlet asked the singer to be 'an ambassador for children, not sweatshops.'
The group announced on their website on Sunday that they would be storming the Fashion Week show as part of a nationwide campaign they call 'badiddas.'
The manifesto claims the company has 'no real responsibility for its factories' in Indonesia after closing a factory in Bangladesh and putting over 2,800 workers out of jobs.

After the disruption the show continued on, and Selena thanked the models as she stood on stage at the end of the show.

The singer did not address the incident on her Twitter, instead choosing to keep out of the controversy and plug her new label instead.
She wrote: 'Amazing show for @adidasNEOLabel tonight!! They looked amazing. #NEOrunway :))'

Congrats, Selena: Selena Gomez celebrated her first collaboration with Adidas at a fashion show in New York on Wednesday
