ABOUT THE BIG DESIGN MARKET
Since its launch in December 2012 The Big Design Market has brought together leading independent designers and design retailers from Australia and overseas. The event attracts capacity crowds to the Royal Exhibition Building, with over 50,000 shoppers coming through the doors each year.
It's the ultimate Christmas shopping destination for those who value original design and ethical production across homewares, fashion, stationery and more. The event provides a great platform for independent design businesses to launch new brands as well as showcase new ranges within existing brands.
WHO SHOULD APPLY
We're looking for independent design businesses who are creating original products that are high-quality, eco-friendly and innovative. Products may include fashion, jewellery, homewares, furniture, textiles, lighting, art prints, stationery, books, tech accessories and kids products.
The selection committee gives preference to applicants whose products are created using sustainable materials and ethical manufacturing methods. Applicants launching new products and those who are not seen regularly at other markets are highly regarded.
Both the Sydney and Melbourne events are curated and as such each application will be assessed individually.
