Hi I’m George Hodgson and I will be speaking at MEYE 2019. I am a fashion-preneur and mental health campaigner. In 2014, I founded the multi award winning ‘Maison de Choup’ fashion brand, which Vanity Fair described as ‘a fashion brand with mental health at its heart’. I’ve previously conducted speeches and workshops in schools, colleges and universities, about how I started the fashion label from a dark place, and shared my own battle with severe anxiety and OCD. I will be part of a panel discussion at MEYE 2019 and I will be showcasing my designs as part of the MEYE 2020 fashion catwalk.
