The flamboyant designer, with the help of a trust model dressed in couture from his latest collection has used one of his iconic prints to transform a dull community space and regenerate an area of London.
The project, Let’s Colour (Letscolour.co.uk) is a global initiative that has just been launched in the UK, which aims to transform the lives of communities across the UK with the use of colour. Matthew is really passionate about the project, for which people can nominate a space they would like transformed at Lets Colour
Dulux believes in the power of colour and is committed to making a positive difference in people's lives.
The Let's Colour Fund has been set up to transform local communities through adding colour to grey spaces.
Dulux is donating £1m to Let's Colour Fund each year starting in 2012. The fund supports a variety of activities that bring colour to those who have challenging lives and activities that positively impact our local communities.
Open to community groups, charities and individuals who have the desire and determination to make a difference, Let's Colour Project is transforming grey spaces with colourful paint all over the United Kingdom.
