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

The Big Design Market invites independent design businesses selling fashion, jewellery, homewares, furniture, textiles, lighting, art prints, stationery, books, tech accessories and eco-friendly products, to apply for a stall.

SELECTION CRITERIA

The Big Design Market is seeking applications from designers whose products are contemporary and original with a high standard of presentation. 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.
