untitled # 122 [1983]

The Fashion series first began in 1983 when Interview Magazine commisioned Sherman to create a portfolio of fashion images for the magazine. Dressed in designer fashions of Jean-Paul Gaultier and Commes de Garcons, the 1983 series shows Sherman mocking the typical models of the period. At the time, models looked bery bland with no real expressions. In contrast to that, Sherman photographed herself as delighted and happy in some of the images, and deranged and almost psychotic in others, such as in Untitled #122 (pictured above). In the early ninties, Sherman again created images for the japanese house of Commes de Garcons which appeared in a catalouge showcasing the line.
