Australia's ultimate shopping destination is back for 2023 with a cool new twist - 'Almost Winter' - the ultimate splash of hedonism as we head into the colder months!

Melbourne's premier shopping event, The Big Design Market "Almost Winter", takes over the Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens for a three-day extravaganza:

Friday 26 May, 11am-8pm

Saturday 27 May, 10am-7pm

Sunday 28 May, 10am-5pm

ęBlake Walshe

The iconic Royal Exhibition Building will be transformed into a winter wonderland with gorgeous twinkling lights and a forest of trees to create a magical space visitors won't want to leave. Expect a feast for the senses with over 200 Australian and New Zealand exhibitors, 50 of the most acclaimed tastemakers from across the country and an incredible art installation - all under one roof!

ęBlake Walshe

Established and rising talent across fashion, homewares, jewellery, tech accessories and more will come together for a truly beautiful experience. Look forward to an incredible curation of ethically made ceramics, jewellery, homewares, clothing, limited-edition art prints, stationery and much more.

The Big Design Market has collaborated with their friends at Electric Confetti to create a neon dream for little ones this year! Keep your children entertained with the FREE creative program for kids and a major 10-metre-tall flower installation created by Melbourne designer, Tara Whalley. Children can also 'Design a Fashion Collection with Tara Whalley' using offcuts from Tara's own fashion collection to dress a paper doll.

PLUS the first time, The Big Design Market will be hosting an immersive fashion experience, Fashion Interruption, representing 20 local fashion labels with a choreographed parade through the aisles. Models will appear from all angles wearing an 'Almost Winter' collection of your favourite fashion labels while you shop.

Also, enjoy a mouthwatering array of gourmet food and baked goods as well as exceptional coffee, cocktails, craft beer and local wines. Highlights include St Ali coffee, Oriental Teahouse, That's Amore Cheese, Earl Canteen and more.

The exclusive showbags are back too - filled with amazing design pieces from exhibitors and a different selection available each day. Available for purchase at the door, limit of 2 per person.

The Big Design Market "Almost Winter" is a shopping event not to be missed. Come along and explore, play, and engage with an extensive array of original products, delectable foods and free activities.
