Born in Tokyo and raised in Australia, Mari Jasmine is an established model and TV host. Pursuing her ambitions, Mari has carved out her career under the spotlights on the runway in various cities. Often seen in relaxed silhouettes, her sense of style never fails to embody elegance and sophistication.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

Growing up, you travelled around the world. How did you end up becoming a model and a host?

I was still modelling when I came to the Philippines, and my stay was meant to be a 3 month contract for me to test the waters, gain some experience as a host and to learn about a new culture. I really didn’t know much about the country and I was excited for a new adventure. I made some great friends and work was going well and before I knew it, I was based here.

What are some of the most challenging aspects about being both?

Job security. As with most self-employed people, you have weeks or months when you’re too busy and in need of a holiday! And other times you’re not as busy and looking for work.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

Is there a particular outfit or style that you have yet to explore?

There’s so much more to experiment with. At the moment I feel most comfortable in ensembles that are minimalist, with clean lines and neutral colours. On casual days, you’ll see me in sports wear. I’m yet to really explore bright colours or prints, or big statement pieces. Who knows what’s next.

What are five things that will always be in your closet, whatever the season?

Good pair of jeans, a plain white T, leather boots, white sneakers & accessories to add a finishing touch to my outfit.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

How do you stay true to your own style while working in an industry of trends and changing fashions?

I define style to be what I deem most comfortable, as our sense of self is ever-changing.

Kiana Valenciano is a singer and fashion designer with a wide array of interests. Influenced by R&B, electronic music and the 80’s, Kiana sets herself apart as a free bohemian spirit, bold and experimental.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

What was it like growing up in a musically inclined family and especially with a Dad who is a musical icon?

There was a lot of backstage time, touring and travelling, a lot of attention and pressure, but never from anyone at home. It was very fun as I had the opportunity to meet many different musicians from all over the world and learned from some of the best at a very young age. My parents have always supported my dreams and continue to push me to try and surpass them and for that I will always feel incredibly grateful.

What is the role of music in your life?

Music is a big part of who I am. It’s something I’m passionate about and it brings me so much joy.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

Describe your music style.

I’m still experimenting but lately I’ve been drifting towards pop and R&B. My dad always encourage me to add my own touch to my music rendition and that’s when I started experimenting and learning what I could and couldn’t do with my voice.

How has travelling inspired your own fashion choices?

One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to people watch. I could sit in a cafe with a book or notebook, some tea, and just people watch for hours. It’s at those times that I’ve really noticed the differences in peoples’ personal style. You see someone wearing an outfit sometimes and you think to yourself “I would have never thought this and that could go together” and you take that with you and try it out for yourself. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s helped me kind of push myself to bend the rules once in a while and remember that overthinking it doesn’t help.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

How does your personality reflect your style?

I’m very particular about the clothes and accessories I put on but my philosophy is simple – embrace what you know you look and feel good in. Do not hesitate to try on something that forces you to leave your comfort zone. I know what I like and I know what I don’t, but I will never run away from trying out to new things, especially those I know will help me grow.

She shines brightly on and off the court, bringing along a fashion sense that mirrors her athletic persona closely.

charles & keith IAmWhoIAm

What encouraged you to take up volleyball?

I took up volleyball when we had to choose clubs in high school. Admittedly, it was my second choice of club.

What has volleyball taught you?

It has taught me that you have to work hard before you can earn something.

What is an unforgettable experience that you have playing volleyball?

Apart from clinching championships for some of our competitions, our losses are also memorable for me. Reflecting on those experiences have the helped team and I bounce back and rise from our defeat.

What is your go-to outfit apart from your volleyball attire?

My style is very simple and I usually wear caps and throw on a jacket to add a little twist to a comfortable everyday outfit.

Where do you get fashion inspiration?

Instagram is a huge source of inspiration for me. Occasionally, I will come across someone’s outfit that I like a lot on the explore page and I will draw inspiration from their ensemble.

COME AS YOU ARE

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12… It happens sometimes; Friends come in and out of our lives like busboys in a restaurant.” – Stand By Me

Every now and then, sights, smells and sounds we come across leave us with emotions that we haven’t felt in a long time. They are often ordinary things like an old song, a whiff of fabric softener or dull white noise. It is amazing how our minds process memories and experiences that can provoke reminiscence for long gone moments; leaving us to watch a playback of our past: a pseudo-documentary in our heads. At some point, we realize that we are homesick for a certain ‘same time, same place yesterday’.

The state air reeked of comforting familiarity as they boarded. They knew which seats to take; it was almost instinctive – so was the route that they were taking on the 9 a.m. bus.

They knew this day would eventually come. Nevertheless, they held on tightly to time as it slowly slipped out of their grasp.

charles & keith magazine

The old bus wheezed like it used to when its doors opened. The rusty steps echoed each heavy step its passengers took. For a long time, these were the greetings it made without fail. Only today, the same wheezing and echo greeted “goodbye”. How ironic it is to witness friendships forged the same way that it is lost.

Each pit-stop they took in their journey marked a pit-stop in their friendship. The routes may stay the same and the stops untouched – yet the 9 a.m. bus doesn’t hold its breath for the same people who board yesterday to alight today.

But that’s what happens when one comes of age.

Some get on the buses and others miss them. Time doesn’t wait for everyone to catch up, time follows some to chase dreams and leaves others behind to build dreams.

charles & keith magazine

Eventually ,none of this would matter when they are 40. My bus will see more friendships forged and lost with each wheezing and rusty echo.

charles & keith magazine

But in that moment, there was an unspoken understanding amongst them as they moved on to their separate roads.
