Fashion… A Lifestyle
“…Fashion is the expression of being free for me when I’m in action on set, or whatever I’m going through (negative). It always turns into something extravagant and positive—sometimes life changing.” – Tyron

Sometimes you just have to flee the coop and chase your dreams. You know, the whole pursuit of happiness and self discovery. Tyron is an artist, model, and stylist who has come to present his idea and vision of fashion to the physical world and to the world wide web. As well, Tyron is an image consultant on a nonstop mission to stay original, yet commercial at the same time. Tyron has been featured on many blogs, has appeared on red carpets, and has been showcased during New York’s Fashion Week. I could use many adjectives to describe Tyron, but I’ll sum it up with a few sentences. Love for family… Love for fashion… Love for life… It’s my pleasure to introduce to you Tyron Jones. Enjoy!
TID: Ty what’s with it man, for the online viewers, tell us a little bit about yourself; who you are, where you’re from, and where you are.
TYRON: I was born and raised in Chicago! As a child I was shy and always under my mother. At the age of 14, my family decided to move to Indianapolis to discover new things. I began to open myself up to experience things such as modeling and working the backstage aspect of fashion. I attended Indiana State University for two years and then decided to move to New York City after. Now I’m in New York living a dream with so many great people that provide the most powerful energy in the universe that I’ve discovered so far.
TID: What is fashion to you and how does it affect/reflect you? Also, what type of fashion pulls your interest? High fashion, street fashion, etc.?
TYRON: Fashion is a creative house for all races to come together and create art! Fashion is the expression of being free for me when I’m in action on set, or whatever I’m going through (negative). It always turns into something extravagant and positive—sometimes life changing. Totally have to say I’m a big fan of high fashion, you never know what to expect.
TID: Talk to us about male modeling. What all goes into it? Any best practices? As well, how does it differ from aspects of female modeling?
TYRON: Modeling is all about being yourself and not caring what others think of you! If you have confidence, all practices will fall in place. In this industry women have to be a certain size. With guys, they look for masculine features with a great face and body.
TID: How did Ty Yah Ent. come about? What is the ultimate goal of Ty Yah Ent. and where do you see it going in the future?
TYRON: I had a conversation with a good friend and we came up with a couple of names. First, we thought of 9ight Visionz as a name, and then the name Ty Yah Ent. came about and I totally fell in love with it. I see Ty Yah Ent. being a style team of many different people that create the most outstanding things for the world to see.
TID: Describe your personal style and how it fits into, and or stands out on the New York City fashion scene.
TYRON: My style is very bold and out-of-the-box. A couple of things I make sure that I have are plenty of are a pair of boots and skinny jeans. You can combine the two with anything..!
TID: Aside from fashion, what other things interest you?
TYRON: I always thought of starting my own business! Within 5 years, I planned to own an accessories store in New York for bags and sunglasses only. I have such a soft spot for kids who are in need so I would also like to start a foundation to help out the youth.
TID: What things, and or which people do you pull from for inspiration?
TYRON: My mother is my number one inspiration! Oprah Winfrey is such inspiration in my life as well! As a woman, she’s opened her mind up to new ideas and inventions and spread it out to the world. Truly inspired by that!
TID: For those who want to get in contact with you, what’s the best way? Email, Facebook, Website?
TYRON: I’m currently working on my website. I have a Facebook page and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
TID: If you had any advice to pass on to today’s individuals worldwide, what would it be?
TYRON: Always believe in the higher power whatever you envision, never give up on what you believe in. Real talk!
TID: I appreciate your time!
TYRON: It’s my pleasure, really appreciate the opportunity.
