The new job is one of a trio of promotions that follow the departure of Bazaar's features director Anamaria Wilson, who's now vice president of global corporate communications at Michael Kors, and its executive editor Kristina O'Neill, who left to become editor of WSJ. Magazine. Nicole Fritton has been named fashion market and accessories director, and Elisa Lipsky-Karasz is the magazine's new features editor.
Hillman got her first job in the industry as an assistant to stylist Lori Goldstein, who she worked with for two years. She then moved to Teen Vogue for four years, where she ultimately served as senior fashion market editor. Hillman joined the Bazaar team in September 2009.
All three promotions coincide with a new arrival at Bazaar: Earlier this month, the magazine announced that Carine Roitfeld would become its global fashion director.
