Google Hires Kate Lanphear

Smart hire.

Google has hired Kate Lanphear to oversee its new search product for fashion week.

According to WWD, the new product “includes a searchable calendar of shows, a feed of relevant stories and social media posts from featured designers and influencers.”

Lanphear previously served as editor of Maxim. Lanphear stepped down from that post late last year.

In addition to her role at Google, Lanphear is serving as a contributing editor for The Editorialist.
