Calling all homeware designers: Enter our mary portas competition

Are you a homeware designer, waiting for that big break?

Following on from the success of the new Mary & House of Fraser shop, the House of Fraser team are searching for up-and-coming homeware designers to pitch their ideas to an expert panel at the Interiors UK trade show in January 2012.

If youai??i??d like to apply, simply fill out the form here by the 6th January. 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 – a concept store designed around Maryai??i??s creative vision.

To ensure the shop continues to push creative boundaries, the Mary & House of Fraser team are looking for product and furniture designers who have an innovative idea for an item to sell or for the shop-fit itself. Winning designs would potentially sit alongside the fashion, gift, home and food collection aimed at ai???grown-up womenai??i?? which launched in August 2011.

Sitting on the expert panel at Interiors UK will be Peter Cross, Mary Portasai??i?? business partner, Roderick Williams, House of Fraser Homeware Director and Alex Dimitriu, House of Fraser Director of Buying (Womenswear).

P.S. If youai??i??re still searching for the perfect Christmas present, why not treat her to a Mary Portas Styling Experience. This includes A?150 to spend in the Mary & House of Fraser Shop, your very own personal stylist, and a complimentary glass of delicious Pommery champagne. For more details ask in-store.

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
