Margaret Zhang has forged an unconventional path in the fashion industry. She launched her website, Shine By Three, at 16 years old and steadily grew her reputation as a photographer, filmmaker and consultant. While still studying her Bachelor of Commerce/ Bachelor of Laws, she attended her first New York Fashion Week. In 2021, Margaret was appointed the Editor-in-chief of Vogue China. At just 27 years old, she is the youngest Editor-in-chief in Vogue’s history.
Bringing a unique cross-disciplinary insight to her role, Margaret has championed young Chinese creatives and pulled together diverse perspectives to rise to the challenges of her new role. Having achieved so much so early in her career, her future is sure to be worth following.
Clear, distinct, honest creatives will always be rewarded in the long-run - thinking too much about commercialisation or commoditisation too early will push you off-track.
