    Blogger Inspiration: Margaret Zhang

Having started her blog at the age of 16, the now 23-year-old is one of the most influential young Australians on the global fashion stage.

While completing her Bachelor of Commerce/ Bachelor of Laws at the University of Sydney, Zhang's online blog, Shine by Three, has authentically grown and cemented her as a prominent figure within the fashion industry.

In an interview for the ABC last year Zhang admits "I just started this website...it was just a space for inspiration...for me to document what was keeping me going...with no intention...or making money from it".

Fast forward 8 years and Zhang has now built an exceptionally impressive resume working with brands such as Louis Vuitton and Swarovski as well as having her work featured in magazines such as Harper's BAZAAR and Elle.

Zhang can successfully credit herself as a writer, photographer, stylist and creative director who is often spotted front row at all the major fashion events .

I first became aware of Margaret Zhang when she featured in the first season of Fashion Bloggers and ever since I have read her blog obsessively. I love her eclectic style and her genuine down-to-earth outlook on life (I was even lucky enough to meet her at last year's Fashion week).

For anyone trying to get his or her foot in the fashion door Zhang offers her advice: "experience is everything. Have initiative and consider what potential employees would want to see on your resume, beyond your supposed "passion for fashion" (please don't put that in your cover letter)".
