Talk to designers, buy their wares and get your hands on work of famous designers of the future – including fashion, jewellery, furniture, homewares, lighting and new products. Plus, join a creative workshop, enjoy great entertainment and see the Museum’s fabulous exhibitions. First launched in 2005, the Young Blood: Designers Market has since grown into a regular event as part of the Museum’s commitment to foster and promote Australian design.
As well as access to thousands of shoppers, Young Blood brings designers in contact with industry, media and commercial networks to help take their product to the next level.
