At 27, the former fashion blogger will be the magazine’s youngest editor-in-chief globally.
Zhang will succeed Vogue China’s founding editor-in-chief Angelica Cheung and will oversee its editorial direction and content, despite having never edited a magazine.
“Margaret creates content on so many different platforms and brings a new perspective and voice to Vogue China,” said Anna Wintour, global editorial director of Vogue and chief content officer of Condé Nast, in an official press statement. “When Angelica Cheung founded Vogue China 15 years ago, she brilliantly broke new ground and now Margaret will continue that tradition of leading the incredibly creative and influential fashion culture in China.”
Zhang launched her own fashion blog, Shine By Three, at the age of 16 in 2009
