The Big Design Market acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation as the First Peoples and Traditional Custodians of this land on which we hold our events. We offer our respect to their Elders both past and present.


Application information


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 Melbourne and Sydney events are curated, and as such, each application will be assessed individually. Please note, previous participation in one or more of our events does not guarantee your application will be successful for future events. Applications will be assessed against our selection criteria which take into consideration the type and number of similar applications received.

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. 

It's the ultimate 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.

In 2024 our Sydney event will be held at Carriageworks in Eveleigh. This iconic events and arts venue will provide a stunning backdrop for the latest in local design.
