What is the Melbourne Collective? The Melbourne Collective Design Markets are a collection of local designers and creatives showcasing their products and selling their wares to the Melbourne community. You can join them for a great day (or two) of shopping, music and delish food while supporting local small businesses. "The Melbourne creative scene is bursting with talent so it's important for emerging designers to have a reputable platform, to showcase their wares in a highly curated yet beautiful space and be encouraged to share their artistic endeavours with the world, to be discovered on a national scale. This event is an essential part of that journey." said Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors.
