Jasmine Ambarwati - Australian Based Fashion Model Interview


Camille Lumogdang
November 29, 2022

Growing up during the 1990s made Jasmine passionate about fashion from a younger age because it allowed her to express herself. She wants to see a collaboration between Aaliyah and Nike Air Jordan someday, as she was a big inspiration in her life!

What was the moment you first got drawn to sneakers, and which pair of sneakers triggered your passion?

I've always been inspired by fashion from the 1990s and early 2000s. I grew up in Houston, Texas, for a big chunk of my childhood.

I would always see music videos on MTV and think, 'I'm going to wear clothes like this when I grow up!'. I also loved watching shows such as The Fresh Prince Of Belair -huge fashion inspo.

My love for sneakers started when I got my first job at 13! I could save up and buy my clothes and shoes, allowing me to express myself through fashion.

What’s one moment or trend in the history of sneaker culture that resonates with you?

I loved seeing the emergence of Bapestas in the early 2000s. The merging between music and fashion has always been the most exciting moment in sneaker culture for me. Kanye and Yeezy, the list goes on.

Please describe how it feels to you when you get and wear a new pair of kicks?

It feels fly as hell! You feel like the coolest person in the room, and a walk anywhere is a runway, LOL.

What are some of your favorite creators/designers or brands and why?

@alealimay - I feel like her style is reminiscent of the 90s; I love her ability to mix streetwear, designer & high fashion effortlessly. @tlzfemme, I love the silhouettes; no one else is doing it like her at the moment!

@jbdapparel - she really elevated knitwear and started a trend. Everyone needs a JBD piece in their wardrobe for summer. @samimirovintage - I love that she began with upcycling vintage garments and now created ethically made clothing with many cut-outs and collaging techniques.

What is one sneaker collaboration that doesn’t exist, but you wish/think should exist?

Aaliyah x Nike Air Jordan, as Aaliyah was a huge fashion icon and inspiration in my life. I would have loved to see what she would have released in the fashion and sneaker industry.

What are some of the current pairs of sneakers in your rotation?

Some pairs in my rotation are the Nike Air Jordan 4 'Military Black,' Nike Air More Uptempo '96, Air Jordan 4 Retro 'Cool Grey,' and Adidas Ozweego.

What is your ultimate holy grail sneaker that you have not managed to acquire so far?

I wish to own a Bathing Ape Bapesta M2 low-top sneakers.

Other than kicks, what are some of your daily essentials or treasured items?

My vintage diesel handbag, Rowland vision glasses, Dada Supreme leather varsity jacket, and trucker hat are essentials.
