Harold Koda to retire January 9th and passes the baton to Andrew Bolton at the Anna Wintour COstume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The humble and charming Harold Koda announced his retirement at the Anna Wintour Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum and his successor, Andrew Bolton. The article is a great read about  a great man, super funny story about flip flops and his tenure at the Met and his strong endorsement for Andrew Bolton. I am also proud to say that Harold Koda is on the jury for ASVOF 8.
