Event description

3 big days. 200+ designers. 50 foodies. 1 big shopping event!  

Over 200 of Australia's best independent designers come together with fifty of the most acclaimed tastemakers from across the country to create a feast for the senses. Almost Winter showcases established and rising talent across fashion, homewares, jewellery, tech accessories and more.

You’ll know it’s Almost Winter when you see the Royal Exhibition Building come alive with its own forest and starry night – perfect for sipping cocktails from Australia’s most highly awarded distillers. While perusing all the amazing products on offer, visitors can relax and enjoy delicious St Ali coffee, cocktails, craft beer, local wines and a mouthwatering selection of food from Oriental Teahouse, Wonderbao, Gradi 400, That's Amore Cheese and more.

Admire artist Mulganai’s beautiful creative installation floating above before you open a limited-edition designer showbag and indulge in a mouth-watering selection of gourmet food.

Get caught up in a fashion runway interruption that will take over the whole Royal Exhibition Building, then step into the world of the Almost Winter kids creative space.

We look forward sharing this iteration of The Big Design Market with you for an exquisite May indulgence.
