TODAY'S WOMAN: Paul says hello to a little piece of fame

A Sheffield student has proved he's got some front when it comes to window shopping.

Paul Williams, a fourth year graphic design student at Sheffield Hallam University, won a competition to create a piece of art to grace a huge window in Manchester's Selfridges store.

His award-winning photo montage, entitled 15 Seconds in tribute to artist Andy Warhol's famous comment about the nature of fame, is now causing shoppers to stop and stare.

His montage is made up of photographs of people spelling out the word 'Hello' - from Big Issue sellers to business people - and is a social comment on the increasingly temporary nature of fame.

Freezing Brits have sent sales of skimpy swimsuits soaring at Debenhams with a sales increase by 20 per cent.

Carie Barkhuizen, spokesperson for Debenhams, said: "With temperatures feeling colder than Antarctica the last thing you would think people would be buying was swimwear."
