Announcing New Form 1.0!
A cross between market and pop up, New Form is not just another art and crafts market - rather, it’s a highly curated hang out space for lovers of fashion and culture. A fresh addition to the Sydney events scene, and something that is currently missing from our cultural calendar.
Launching on Sunday 8 October, the goal is to become a quarterly event, where visitors can come to buy the latest fashion from local designers and Australian ecommerce brands, listen to music, grab a bite to eat and admire visual installations and art exhibitions - whilst hanging out with friends.
Its other uniqueness is that each edition will be highly curated by a different person. This curator will get to put their own mark on the event, ensuring that each edition looks and feels new every time.
The all-local line up for the first edition includes boutique fashion labels Serpent and the Swan and The One Label. Vintage wardrobe staples will be supplied by Tuesday Vintage and upcycled vintage brand RENCE - repurposing pre-loved garments with customised hand painted art.
Studio Coy handcrafts her colourful range of jewellery ethically in Sydney, whereas Zuku Jewellery goes beyond earrings and necklaces to create avant-garde wearables.
New Form also joined forces with The Design Residency - an incubator and collaborative creative space for upcoming designers based in Darlinghurst - to present the “The Design Residency Hub” at New Form, showcasing two of their talented young designers: Casea the Label and Carley Rose the Label.
What’s more is that the first market will be graced with the presence of Gretel Corrie’s beautiful handmade ceramics, inspired by the organic shapes and colours found in nature and the female form.
And if that wasn’t enough - Online Zine Org (OZO), a collective of Sydney-based artists, illustrators, photographers and record collectors, will be going offline to present a selection of self-published zines - and play tunes.
And finally, New Form has officially partnered with Sydney-based Astrophe Magazine, an independent magazine run by local creatives Simone Taylor and Sinead Curry, who will be showcasing an exclusive exhibition of their photography prints, exploring the first issue's core theme Sirius - the brightest star in the night's sky.
And when you’ve run out of fuel, make sure to kick back and recharge with a delicious treat from market favourites Turkish Gozleme or Miss Mabel’s food truck.
Whilst you’re there, also make sure to pick up a New Form tote bag, as all profits will go to the Black Dog Institute to provide research and aid to those affected by depression, suicide, and bipolar disorder.
We’re not done yet, the first 50 customers will also receive a free coffee, courtesy of Enmore local legends Black Market Roasters!
