WARNING

You didn't use the type Type = string | number as parameters Type.

Didn't works:

type Type = "string" | "number"

   @PropertyType(Type)
   property: Type[];
}

Works with converter and AJV:

type Type = "string" | "number"
class Model {
   @Property()
   @AllowTypes("string", "number") // for AJV
   property: Type[];
}
