A savvy fashion design student from Sheffield has created a one-off avant-garde coat – thanks to a £250 donation from her local Wilko store.

Polly Smith, a 21-year-old fashion design student from Sheffield Hallam University, has designed a coat made entirely of paint brush bristles – taken from over 70 Wilko paint brushes.

John Cartledge, manager of the Wilko store on London Road, Sheffield, donated £250 for materials after hearing about Polly’s initial design.
