Dear Shaded Viewers,

Years ago, not even sure how many, I met Matthew Zorpas when I was with Konstantinos Menelaou at London Fashion Week. We have been friends ever since. He loves a destination birthday which has taken us to Athens, Paris and this year it was supposed to be Lisbon but CODIV-19 kept this adventurer at home in his new apartment in London with a roof top. Not easy to limit his large group of friends to the CODIV-19 conditions…Happy Cyber Birthday my dear friend.
