Selena Gomez Launches Collaboration With Adidas, Ambushed By Protestors [PHOTOS]

February 7th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

Last night in New York City, Selena Gomez sat front row at the Adidas NEO Label’s Fall 2013 fashion show.

Gomez, the brand’s ambassador, collaborated with the sports brand to create a collection full of graffiti prints, denim shorts, graphic tees and slouchy sweats in yellows, bright pinks and navy.

During the presentation, a young woman handed Gomez a flyer claiming that Adidas is involved in sweatshop labor practices overseas, according to Us Weekly.  Another protestor was also handing out the flyers, which read: “Selena Gomez: Be an ambassador for children, not for sweatshops.” 

An observer told Us that Gomez appeared “shocked” by the protestor, and was escorted out of the show by security.  However, Gomez came back in after the finale to acknowledge the designs.

“Thank you so much for coming out,” the star told the audience.  ”I’m so excited to be a part of this and so excited to see what you guys did with it, you did an amazing job!”
