Cortazzi founded ethical clothing brand Regenerate in 2008 with support from Nottingham Trent University’s enterprise centre. She also lectures part-time on the school’s fashion courses.
In Vietnam, she will be teaching a range of fashion studies and courses, which will include street wear, entrepreneurship, fashion styling and illustration. She will also be looking to introduce students to ethical fashion and fair trade.
Since accepting the role, Cortazzi has been approached by other Asian universities in Cambodia, Indonesia and Hong Kong, who are also interested in her Regenerate Education programme of workshops and tutorials.
Cortazzi said: “I’m really excited about this opportunity and getting involved with projects such as The British Council’s Creative Cities programme with all the creative entrepreneurs over there. Being in Asia will allow me to fulfil my ambition of developing the Regenerate Clothing line further by introducing a new fair trade range, whilst following my passion for teaching.
“I’m also looking forward to pushing Regenerate Clothing to new markets in the world, such as places like Australia which have a demand for well-designed, ethically aware, British fashion labels.”
