Mariadelle "Abbey" Gamit


New Zealand Fashion Museum · 'to fashion' Intro - Mariadelle 'Abbey' Gamit

I am:

Mariadelle 'Abbey' Felize M. Gamit, 27 years old, she/they. I am a queer Pinay artist currently practising in Tāmaki Makaurau (although I prefer the term manananggal). I am also part of the collectives AllMyFriends and Āhua.

I am wearing:

In order from top to bottom then accoutrements: The hat was from Canshop Queenstown. To my delight the elderly lady at the counter comments this is wild. My top is from Nicki Minaj's merch drop from her Beam Me Up Scotty re-release. The jacket is a gift from my mum who almost always never gets what kind of clothes I prefer to wear until now of course (thank you ❤️). From another op shop is this preppy mini pleated denim skirt. These Agyness Deyn × Doc Marten creepers were purchased from a stall in Laneway. Vic Mensa was part of that year's lineup and he bought the same pair that time as well. Additional height is always welcome if you're 5"3. Loves me a good choker and this one is from Killstar. The Telfar bag is a group purchase with my best friends where we all got one each. I wouldn't have actively bought this for myself but I went with it as I thought it was sentimental that my best friends and I got a Telfar bag of different sizes and styles in the hopes of rocking them together. To compliment the inconveniently small bag is my so-called spoiled Bratz™ of a daughter. Peroxy and I wanted to match so we're both wearing the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint. Overall, this look is The Clueless Barb and she's a rich & fashionable Caucasian woman.
