The founder of leading high street fashion chain Whistles, Lucille Lewin, has spoken to the Daily Mail about the importance of being able to reinvent yourself throughout your life, following her time on the ceramics diploma course at City Lit between 2012 and 2014.

Lucille discovered her passion for ceramics on the course following her hugely successful career in fashion and retailing (selling the Whistles business in 2002). She also recently won the £1,500 Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize after going on to complete an MA in ceramics and glass following her time at City Lit.

Phil Chamberlain, Executive Director (External Engagement) at City Lit said:

"Lucille's example should be an inspiration to us all. Her story is a reminder that there is never a wrong time to pursue new opportunities or realise new goals."
