Mary Portas at Interiors UK

Mary Portas is searching for up and coming homeware designers!

Following on from the success of the Mary & House of Fraser shop, the retail team behind the project are searching for up-and-coming homeware designers to pitch their ideas to an expert panel including Mary's business partner Peter Cross at the Interiors UK trade show in January 2012.

New designers can apply online and will be shortlisted in order to determine who gets to pitch at the show itself. Successful applicants who pitch will get the chance to see their ideas put in to production and either sold as a product or displayed as part of the Mary & House of Fraser shop-fit.

The team is particularly looking for product and furniture designers who have an innovative idea for an item to sell or for the shop-fit itself.

The closing date for online applications is 6th January so hurry!

All products shown are from Mary & House of Fraser.
