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 in Melbourne and the Cutaway at Barangaroo in Sydney, 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.

Applications

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.

APPLICATION ASSESSMENT

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 takes into consideration the type and number of similar applications received.
