Avenue into Industry recognises the challenge young designers face outside the educational institutions and builds a bridge between education and industry. It offers a number of services to young designers, including mentoring, museum assistantships, work experience and business support.

The museumís position is unique, as it is adjacent to the design and production studio of Zandra Rhodes. For students interested in fashion and textile design, there is an opportunity to work in the studio assisting with research, fashion and print design, pattern making and presentation. They will be guided by Zandra Rhodes and her staff to create original textile designs, presentation boards and garments. This is already a highly successful project providing valuable practical experience for fashion and design students from around the world. There are placements of 2 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months.
