Delightful Discoveries for Design Devotees
The Melbourne Design Market is returning to Federation Square for one day only on Sunday 21st June 2015. This Market features over 50 carefully chosen designers to showcase their creations to savvy Melbourne shoppers.

The Market has been running since 2004, and has developed a large following of fans of unique design. The event is held twice a year, mid-year and in November. Each event features a cleverly curated selection of local designers.

The Underground Carpark at Fed Square will be transformed into a hive of activity, as thousands of shoppers descend to discover the latest trends in design. Although in the carpark, it is heated, so is a great escape from the dreary winter days in Melbourne!

There is a large variety of stallholders, so there is sure to be something to appeal to all tastes. From furniture and homewares, to fashion and jewellery. From fresh-faced designers sharing their creations for the first time, to established brands launching new products. This market is not to be missed if you are looking for a unique gift, a stunning focal point for your home, or even a sneaky present for yourself!

This time around, there is a focus on Men. Leather craftsman Jess Wootten from 'Wootten', will bring his trade machinery to display the effort put into making his handmade leather shoes, belts and more.

Also for men, there will be designer shirts from Hew Clothing, a large range of bags from Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger, custom-made leather key accessories from Orbitkey
and much more.

The rest of the family is also well-catered for, including beautiful jewellery and scarves from Days of August, stunning wooden homewares and jewellery from Woodfolk and plenty more you'll have to experience for yourself.
