Day three of Australian Fashion Week welcomed Third Form to the stage, headed by Founder and Director Merryn Kelly. Welcoming its inaugural solo show, attendees buzzed in anticipation for the milestone that ‘reFORM Resort 25’ was. Here’s what we thought.

From outset the audience was greeted with daring cutouts, floral jacquards, and dazzling sequins. The collection immediately resonated with this sense of effortless and oh-so-chic rebellion that we absolutely loved.

Kelly’s deliberate shift towards a slower fashion model, eschewing the fast-paced ‘see now, buy now’ trend, also demonstrated a commitment to thoughtful craftsmanship and design. Drawing inspiration from the 70s and 80s, the collection exuded nostalgia with tassels, frayed denim, and intricate pleating. Texture was big, only reaffirming everything we’ve been seeing at fashion week so far.

Adding to the excitement, Third Form introduced its first ever line of handbags. They complemented the collection in fabulous matchy-matchy ways that we can’t help but love. Whilst some resembled more ‘ham-bag’ than handbag at time, what’s fashion week without some over the top and capricious accessories. 

Overall, Third Form’s debut solo show radiated ‘effortless cool girl’ vibes, blending edgy sophistication with laid-back allure. As fashion week unfolds, it will be intriguing to see if other designers can match the bold yet refined aesthetic set forth by Kelly.
