Raised in the UK, and based between Shanghai, Jing Zhang now balances consultancy work, editing and journalism as a leading authority in Asia on style, fashion and culture. Prior to this, she was the Fashion Editor at the SCMP for 7 years, covering the global fashion circuit as well as Asia’s growing scene. Before that she edited the pioneering, bilingual WestEast Magazine.
She has interviewed the likes of Ralph Lauren, Malcolm Gladwell, Karl Lagerfeld, Zaha Hadid, Jackie Chan, Dolce & Gabbana, David and Victoria Beckham, LV CEO Michael Burke and Christian Louboutin, and has a passion for discovering young talents across the globe.
Her beat now focuses on covering trends, innovations and industry in culture, fashion, retail, personality, arts, travel, technology and startups in Asia. She also writes for the Hollywood Reporter and directs a Chinese-language fashion platform startup from Shanghai.
Her degrees in Psychology and Anthropology still often inform Jing’s cultural and fashion analyses. And being based in Shanghai, the heartbeat of China’s emerging fashion and retail sectors, has offered a wealth of insight into the latest movements in China’s digital economy and creative rise.
