Derek Sabori

Lead Instructor

Derek Sabori

My passion and expertise lie at the intersection where environmental & social sustainability, brands, products, and education collide; especially, apparel and lifestyle goods. I’ve been in the space now for more than 20 years. I cut my chops working in the Design Department at the brand Volcom, and ultimately turned my Merchandising Director position into a VP of Global Sustainability role. I worked under Kering’s sustainability team’s guidance for five years, and have co-founded and built my own Certified B Corp, Kozm; a brand built mindfully, for mindfulness. Most recently, I developed and teach three different Sustainable Fashion courses at Orange Coast College; it’s become a first of its kind certificate program. I've worked with brands like Volcom, Roark, Stance, Billabong, and the Boardriders Group, PJ Salvage, SIMA (Surf Industry Manufacturer's Association), and even Sambazon (Acai), and others outside of apparel. Whether you’re working for a brand, a service provider, are a student, a professional, or a conscious consumer looking for advice and guidance, these courses will help you. I'm sure of it.
