An Australian Influencer has slammed a fashion label for not inviting her on its brand trip to Coachella over the weekend. 

Melbourne-based creator Yasmin called out clothing brand Bye Bambi for failing to include her on the fun-filled getaway despite promoting the label on her social media for free.

The influencer, who has 17,000 followers on Instagram and 135,000 on TikTok, was also the face of the label’s fifth birthday campaign last year.

She explained she’d hoped the free work would open her up to further opportunities with the brand.

However, Yasmin was left devastated when the clothing brand announced it would be holding a pop-up store in LA and taking influencers on the trip but failed to invite her.

In a video shared to TikTok, she explained: ‘Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to do it for free, I signed a contract. I knew what I was getting myself into by doing that stuff for free and getting a voucher in return.’

‘I thought I was going to get really good exposure and in return, it would be a great experience for me because I’ve never hosted an event before and it was huge.

‘But I feel like I went above and beyond and got nothing back.’

Yasmin went on to say she felt like she has been ‘taken advantage of’ as she’d taken ‘part in a 10-hour shoot and hosted the brand’s event in exchange for a voucher.’

‘I feel like they knew how much I love the brand. They knew I would do anything for them. They knew I would f**ken die for them. They knew I would host the event,’ she continued.

‘They knew I would do all of this stuff for them for literally no money at all. I just feel like they were like you’re done, you’re done. Next.’

Yasmin said many of her fans and friends were asking her why she wasn’t invited to the Coachella trip.

‘Don’t get me wrong, Of course, they can choose who represents their brand and who comes to these events and who they send overseas but when you just do so much for someone or something you feel like you’re going to get,’ she said.

‘I just felt like I was creating a relationship with them. I just feel defeated and like what the f**k was the point of all that.’
