Gabriela Herstik is a writer, fashion alchemist and witch. Through her work with Nylon, i-D, Broadly, The Numinous, Sabat Magazine and more, Gabriela has made a name for herself as a fashion critic and writer with a penchant for combining spirituality, style and storytelling.
As Latinx Culture Writer for HelloGiggles, Gabriela shares stories of what it means to be Latinx today. And how it's not always easy, but it's always worth celebrating.
With her monthly "Ask a Witch" column for Nylon, Gabriela answers questions about channeling ancient wisdom in the modern age. From spellcraft to finding your path, she explores what it means to be a millennial witch.
And now, with her upcoming book Gabriela will explore modern witchcraft more in depth. "Craft: How To Be A Modern Witch," will be out with Ebury/ Penguin Random House in March 2018. Gabriela unlocks the ancient art of witchcraft so that you can find a brand of magick that works for you.
By approaching fashion, human rights and the occult from a intersectional feminist lens, Gabriela offers a deeper sense of empowerment to readers. Whether she’s interviewing a Latinx owned makeup brand, writing a ritual spell for self-love, or spot-lighting women and femme artists fighting the patriarchy, Gabriela knows that every word holds magick, but adding a little lipstick to the mix never hurts.
