By Michelle Alles

Tymeron Carvalho, or ‘Tymo’ as he is known amongst his friends, is every lady’s eye candy but sorry, he’s taken. Tymeron has been in a committed relationship with his partner, Andre Estefan for a very long time together, the two of them are just perfection.

Tymeron Carvalho,Tymeron is no stranger to the world of fashion, having started his career at 16 years of age, when he appeared in his first TV commercial. Twelve years later, he has come a long way and amassed a tremendous amount of experience, not just by walking the ramp for many of Sri Lanka’s top designers, but by bagging the main title for Best Model of The World 2013 along with three mini titles, Mr Friendship, Best National Costume and Best Runway Model. In 2016, he won a special award for Asia’s Best Fashion Model at Fashion Asia awards and he was placed in the top 6 out of 39 countries at the Mr Supranational Asia 2018 pageant last year. Tymeron’s not one to rest on his laurels; as a creative and talented individual, his fashion evolution saw his designing outfits for Miss Universe Sri Lanka and Miss World Sri Lanka since 2012 and his breath-taking designs have wowed audiences on many a fashion ramp in Colombo.

Tymeron has recently been working on a few projects – some of which he can’t reveal yet – but that’s all the more reason to get curious and ‘stalk’ his social media for more details. He sat down with us to answer (and avoid!) some of our nosy questions.

What is the most important thing that you’d want people to know about you?

I would want people to know (and most people close to me already do! that I am disciplined, hardworking and persistent.

Did you have an early interest in fashion, or was it something that came later?

Yes, I had an interest in fashion from my childhood days. When I would draw pictures, I remember drawing only pictures of brides in their dresses and sarees. I would also dress up all my Virgin Mary statues with brocade fabric (I’m sure she didn’t mind it at all! and this passion for it kept, and will keep on growing.

What have you learned so far about being creative and an entrepreneur?

I have learned that I have to set my own timelines and own boundaries to excel in my creativity and be what I want myself to be. In addition, self-discipline provides inner strength and confidence which allows me to take decisions in a calm and composed manner.

Non-Physical behaviors that count as cheating 0 873

By: Chantal D.

What counts as cheating? It’s a question that we may never have a straight answer to. With more and more ways to keep in touch through technology and social media, there are a lot of blurred lines when it comes to what is and isn’t appropriate. 

Texting a friend is fine, but texting a friend before bed every night might be considered less fine. But where are the boundaries?

Besides the obvious sexual acts what is really fascinating about these results is that an emotional connection is actually far more likely to be considered cheating than other explicitly sexual things — like sending naked photos to someone else. That may be for a very good reason — emotional infidelity can be extremely painful.

“Emotional cheating is very hurtful, to know that someone is cheating on us emotionally is heart breaking.”

Why does emotional cheating hurt so much? Well, it’s impossible to write it off as just a little “blip”. If your partner has sex with someone else you can rationalize that ‘it didn’t mean anything’ or ‘it was just sex’. But with emotional cheating, the person obviously does mean something to your partner. It feels like more of a threat to the stability and longevity of your relationship.NFB-01

It’s very serious stuff. Although one heartening part of this is, considering how many different things might be considered cheating and how varied people’s opinions are.

But if you’re not sure about where some of the boundaries fall, here’s what some had to say about the non-physical behaviors that count as cheating, because they’re way more lax than you might have thought. 

Forming A Deep Emotional Bond With Someone Else:

The number one action that people considered cheating was forming an emotional connection with someone else; this can cross the line into infidelity. Some emotional connection like friendships, can be totally innocent, but in other cases they’re definitely inappropriate.

Sending Naked Pictures To Someone Else: 

People sending naked pictures to someone other than your partner would 100 percent be cheating, and yet, sending nudes is OK to many people.

Texting Erotic Messages to Someone Else: 

Sexting someone else may seem pretty inappropriate, but only few thinks that they should be considered cheating. I guess there’s a lot of sliding into the DMs happening.

Man behind the fashion revolution – Michael Wijesuriya 0 2057

By : Chantal D

“Michael”
Man Behind Fashion Evolution

Each day, we put on clothes that do more than just cover up bodies. We choose clothes that represent our personalities, our moods, the times we live in, our ambitions and our desires. In the Sri Lankan history, there is one man who stand high as a pillar when it comes to fashion whose work is as controversial, and as influential as traditional art.

He became known for his glamorous styles, producing dresses using innovative materials which was quite the unthinkable at the time he stepped in to the industry 27 years ago.

Seeing his mom dressing up rather elegantly when he was quite young and following her to designers and salons has open up a whole new chapter in his life. His aunt has further influenced him when she moved in with his family where she had her own clothing business.

These experience had made him realize the power that clothing has, where he believes “clothing is a language all of its own”

Born in Sri Lanka, Michael became one of the top fashion icons in 1990’s and 2000. Coming back home after completing his higher education in the United States, he took the challenge in building a fashion empire focusing on luxury to women’s fashion. His resulting success, based on the innovation of both his designs and his business practices, made him the most successful fashion designer in the country. His designs been worn by film stars, celebrities and he became every bride to be’s dream.

Each and every garment he creates is an innovation of his own, which is a unique peace of art and each of it that leaves his studio has been done by his own hands. Most clothes are made specifically for an individual, as in the case of haute couture or bespoke tailoring and he has no replicas. Although he has a ready to wear line of clothing mostly he’s known as a couture.

Standing high as he can be in the industry and being acknowledge by the honorable President of Sri Lanka for his contribution to the industry, he is one of the most selfless people I have had the privilege to associate.  He has taken more than 20 people under his wings who had absolutely no knowledge of fashion or garments, and taught them everything where he was, believe it or not a complete self-taught artist through trial and error.

A simple man, who live by his rules and a very family oriented where he put most of his time to make people who matters to him happy.

His next ready to wear collection will specifically cater to plus size women where in his eyes, each person should feel confident about their bodies and how they look. It’s an era where everyone wants to squeeze in to a size 8 but not realizing having curves makes a women look more appealing and that is the challenge he took where his next line of clothing will be dedicated for the plus size.

He has been a person who had believed in himself and the God above. Unless you plant your feet firmly on the ground you will lose your identity, thus he is one person who never forgot where he started and who had been there in his pathway lending their hand in many ways in his journey of life.

He is a “Brand” which sometimes impossible to put a price tag to his work of art.

People fall in love with his work, they fall in love with the man behind the work, because of his talent of capturing their eyes and their heart with his selfless personality. That made his clients kept on coming back to him decade after decade as he became a part of their lives that’s not replaceable.

“Miclael” has become an identity for most women as he created their personality through his creations.

A man who loves racing as a hobby, he has many different talents that’s just natural to him. Painting, music, designing furniture and building them on his own are just a few of his aptitudes.

I think creativity is inside him; never been to a fashion school, he is so strong in his thinking and seeing fashion in his own way, the brand “Michael” has no limits. “Michael” is a name known well in Asia and of course in Europe where people flying just to pick up their dress done by him.

There are many counterfeits and copies for his designs, but none is as close as the bespoke original.

A man who created a ripple throughout the industry of fashion in Sri Lanka is none other than “Michael Wijesuriya” is just “one of a kind” who’s humble enough to know he’s not better than anybody and wise enough to know that he’s different from the rest
