Pip Edwards has had enough of trolls - losing patience with taunts about how her staff tried to stop a young artist entering a prestigious art prize with a portrait of her.

The P.E Nation founder erupted on Instagram as her page unwittingly became a forum for heated debate over her PR chief's treatment of Lauren Ferrier - some with unkind remarks.

'Pathetic not allowing that young women to enter that portrait of you into the Archibald Prize?!' said one follower. 'Oh boo hoo poor Pip'.

The apparently frustrated high profile fashion designer fired back: 'The artwork WAS entered into the Archibald!'

Ms Gaffikin wrote that the painting made Edwards look 'much older beyond her years' and said the imagery didn't 'align' with the fashionista.

She suggested Ms Ferrier, who had worked on the painting for months, should produce a more 'youthful' alternative.

While the publicist insisted that Edwards hadn't seen the portrait yet, she simply couldn't supply her crucial signature on a form because of that.

Edwards eventually acquiesced and signed the form after Ms Ferrier warned her it wasn't a matter of consent, rather an acknowledgment they had met.

Ms Gaffikin issued a statement about the brouhaha noting Edwards 'appreciates' the artist's take and noting art is by its very nature often subjective.

Pip Edwards has hit back at critics after her activewear brand P . E . Nation was slammed online over a 'tone-deaf' Instagram post about the Black Lives Matter movement. The post, which was uploaded earlier this month, declared that there should be 'equality for all'

But debate continues to rage about the portrait itself and their treatment of Ms Ferrier.

'Art is not "imagery" that you can control like an IG filter,' one Instagram user told Ms Edwards.

'The painting was fine!' another said, with a third offering to whip up an artwork: 'I won't make you look haggard'.

Sydney Morning Herald art critic John McDonald told Daily Mail Australia he only had a few criticisms of the painting.

Mr McDonald said he felt it looked 'stiff' - as it was partially based off a photo - and observed it was only painted in black and white.

But he also noted Edwards wasn't without blame.

'Every second portrait I think that's done, the subject of a portrait doesn't like it or thinks it makes them look too old or too ugly.

'If she didn't want a portrait out there she didn't approve of she should have carefully vetted the artist.'
