)-- Children's fashion photographer JaTawny Muckelvene Chatmon has posted new tribute images to Lee Alexander McQueen on her blog and website. JaTawny, along with a group of other artists including a make up artist, hair stylist and wardrobe stylist composed a photography tribute to the late Lee Alexander McQueen using child fashion models. The tribute has been released on the one month anniversary of the late designers death.
The photographer posts "At 11:22 am on February 11, 2010 it was confirmed to me that Lee "Alexander" McQueen died. At 11:22 am a month later (March 11th, 2010) I wanted to share this project put together by myself; JaTawny Muckelvene Chatmon (photography), Isabelle Philogene (wardrobe), Joie Hayes (make up), Kenni Ford (hair) as a tribute in honor of the great, late Lee "Alexander" McQueen. He always marched to the beat of his own drum creating pieces that either seemed to materialize directly from a child's whimsical daydream or harmonious beautiful nightmare. I would have loved to have seen what he could have created for children, since we never will, here's how we imagined it might be."
The photo project exhibits mini fashion prima donna's ages six to eleven years old adorned in McQueen"esque" wardrobe, make up and hair.
Lee Alexander McQueen was found dead in his home in London at the age of 40 shorty after 10am on February 11, 2010. The designer committed suicide nine days after the death of his mother. Some of the designers accomplishments include being one of the youngest designers to achieve the title "British Designer of the Year" which he won a total of 4 times and being named International Designer of the Year at the Council of Fashion Designer Awards.
