Two tears ago, i found an ebay user that sells Ayumi cd and since Im an Ayumi Hamasaki fan, I bought it right away. A smooth and fast transaction. That's how I might this guy.
1. Tell us something about yourself.
My name's Mark Jaro Necesito, better known as Jaro Furosaki. I'm filipino and yes I'm part Japanese but I'm more pinoy & more colloquial with Japanese culture. I'm a self-taught fashion photographer and still practicing more about this field everyday. I'm a multimedia arts (under-graduate) student from Asia Pacific College who shifted to Mass Communication in University of Cordilleras, Baguio City (before this, I shifted from other courses as well!) to finally fulfill my dreams of being a professional fashion photographer and work on big magazine titles such as PREVIEW, NYLON and the likes! ;) I love to travel but I seldom do travel photography but if given a chance to travel around the world, I will not even think twice of accepting an offer! I love fashion and arts as it revolves around me everyday! I'm obsessed with my partner in the near future, Mr. Rabbit.
2. Describe your personal style.
My personal style actually depends on my mood. I don't really stick to one style as I change my style every year & yes I am quite bipolar when it comes to my personality. I like looking like a little boy, my style can be categorized in street/hip-hop/preppy. Sexuality-wise, I will never be caught doing drag as I'm fine with the way I am, I do not need to mod myself up to look "FABULOUS" & "DASHING", I'd rather celebrate my masculinity in a fashionable statement.
I like wearing T-shirts with cute prints on 'em that would symbolize quirkiness & my child-like attitude paired with cute shorts & socks/leggings, however, due to extremities of the climate here in Baguio, I now wear denim jeans. My sense of style is really complicated when it comes to describing it as it varies, let's just say that my fashion is inspired from Alice in Wonderland meets Peter Pan riding a unicorn over a rainbow, picture that and that would be it! coloooooooors~~~♥
3. When did you start to like this kind of fashion and how?
I started dressing up when I first opened a magazine in Japan called FRUiTS. I was astonished and I feel inspired, I thought I was already doing good with the way I dress! The photos of people compelled me to dress better than them, though most of them can be seen with tacky, carnival & unusual coordination of patterns & colors, I wanted to look like them. I kept reading those magazines until I was able to adapt its sense of style. Since I've always wanted to be unique, I narrowed down three words altogether (individualism + japan + immaturity) to achieve something striking & eccentric.
4. What are your top 10 closet must haves?
1.] multi-colored socks/leggings
2.] cadette shorts from K-2
3.] neon colored preppy jackets (which I rarely wear)
4.] vintage-looking vests from thrift stores
5.] military coats (for when I feel like going in a battle)
6.] BAPE hoodies!! (they have th cutest monkey prints~♥)
7.] a big box filled with eyeglasses without its lenses :))
8.] 2 make-up bags filled with cute hair-clips & pins
9.] denim jeans! (it goes well with anything!)
10.] piles & piles of hats! ♥ I love collecting different kinds of 'em! from a russian hat to a baseball cap! :D
5. Beauty products that you cannot live without
Three of my essentials would be...
Milk Tea cleansing foam from Etude House
I've been using this "tasty" treat for years now & I haven't gotten any skin irritations 'til now! I would recommend this as a daily regimen for skin care. I just wish I could mix this together with a hot water to make milk tea! haha! It really smells good if you're a fan of milk tea. ♥
NIVEA shaving foam
I shave my 'stache every morning after brushing my teeth. It has aloe vera as I have sensitive skin, it doesn't leave me irritations & blisters! It's a must for every guy to shave with a facial foam. Put this on your list as shaving without foams could cause pimples/breakouts!
Garnier Light daycream
For someone who lives in a place like Baguio, a moisturizer is a must! I don't use make-up, just moisturizers and this one really helps a lot as it prevent my skin to dry! Goes for the boys & girls, yes. :3
6. Who are your fashion icons and why?
I have two as I'm very bipolar when it comes to fashion.
When I feel like going crazy & mental, I'd side with Mr. John Galliano. His designs are just as intricate as his mind! J'adore his couture!
I'm mostly caught wearing street style kind of clothes (from BAPES to anything urban! \m/ hellyeaaaah!) I love Jeremy Scott, unfortunately, the style would be categorized as (the infamous) jejemon due to it's colorful palette & head-turning details. Anything colorful is considered jejemon in the Philippines as this look was sported by the jejemons themselves (due to countless visuals & designs shown by KPOP artists). But hell yeah, just suck it up & care less 'bout their opinions! ^^)b
7. What are some fashion/makeup tips that you would like to share?
I don't wear cosmetics to keep my skin healthy and pimple-free, I'd trust a dermatologist on that. But here's a tip for guys, never shave your 'stache or side burns upright as it would irritate the skin while shaving and could cause breakouts, so whenever you shave it upright, it's like you're planting pimples on your cheeks. ew....
Oh and another one would be to avoid washing your face with hot or cold water as it can cause broken capillaries. Only use your cleansing foams twice a day.
Thank you for sharing a lot with us! Fashion isn't only for girls. This interview definitely shows that men are confident and want to look great too!
