THIRD FORM is the result of a then rebellious Merryn Kelly having her entire high school design portfolio thrown off her family balcony and told it would never amount to anything.
After using this as motivation to succeed, Merryn went on to study at Sydney Tafe Fashion Design Studio and into design roles at Australian fashion brands; Zimmerman, Shakuhachi and Lee Jeans.
Since it’s inception in 2014, the brand has been worn by IT girls Margaret Zhang, FIGTNY, Nadia Fairfax and Vanessa Hong. Labelled ‘cult following’ by VOGUE Australia and a ‘New Face of Australian Fashion’ by Forbes.com.
Through 2016 and 2017, Merryn’s strong vision and business nous caught the eye of the top industry judging panels and achieved outstanding accolades. Becoming a finalist for the prestigious VAMFF National Designer Award presented by David Jones, supported by Harper’s BAZAAR in 2017, as well as entry into the 2016 Project Next Gen for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.
In a short time, THIRD FORM has carved out its place in the designer market with Merryn continuing to deliver consistent and sophisticated urban lifestyle collections now epitomised in THIRD FORM.
