Clint Webster - Biography
It all began in September of 2004, when Clint submitted a leather outfit for a showcase in Sydney, Australia, and was placed fourth out of 150 entrants. The showcase cemented his new-found interest in designing women's fashion and prompted him to complete a series of fashion design courses at East Sydney and Ultimo College.
Clint started designing edgy women’s clothing and experimented with different leathers and fabrics and went on to establish a high-fashion label, ClintonCharlie, to accommodate his change in style.
Clint’s first range under the ClintonCharlie label was unveiled at the Sydney Northern Beaches Fashion Show, f.rock05 in mid-September 2005, gathering a lot of interest from the VIP guests, Industry representatives, the public and the local media who attended.
After a year of sample making, customising and tailoring, Clint decided to concentrate on women's denim and now boasts his curve-enhancing BootyHuggers® jeans as being the signature items of his ClintonCharlie label. With the first batch selling out in less than three weeks in late 2006, ClintonCharlie has not looked back and continues to go from strength to strength in the highly competitive denim market.
Late 2008 saw the ClintonCharlie brand move into designing corporate wear for some of the biggest and hottest hotel and club venues in Sydney, with nightspots such as the Shore Club, the Columbian Hotel, the Newport Arms Hotel and the Commodore Hotel employing ClintonCharlie’s professional services to re-design their staff uniforms. This area of business continues to grow steadily.
The addition of Silvia Grenova as a new business partner in 2010 then brought exciting change and new business development opportunities for Clint and the ClintonCharlie brand and, together, Clint and Silvia have become a steadfast team with their combination of creative aptitude and business nous.
2011 is shaping up to be a year of growth for the label, following the announcement that BootyHuggers® would be stocked in selected stores of one of Australia’s leading fashion designers, Charlie Brown. Plans are also underway for expansion into Europe and the United States, as international demand for BootyHuggers® has become enormous due to a massive online push from those on the BootyHuggers fan page on Facebook, the online networking site of which generates the majority of ClintonCharlie’s sales.
The burgeoning business was also reason behind Clint’s recent decision to decline a six-month internship in Paris with fashion house, Chloe, the offer and recognition of which was a testament of his skill and dedication to women’s fashion.
