  • About Us

    Influence is the trading name used by our family owned business and during its time Influence has covered the full spectrum of the clothing industry including Importation, Manufacture, Wholesale & Retail.


    Influence has managed to remain ever present in extremely difficult times and has maintained a constant steady growth - its name being synonymous with the most competitive prices possible combined with the ability to provide a quick turnaround service that our competitors can only admire.


    Influence is a product & design led company and has established the very best relationships with its customers buying teams and the personal touch has always been of prime importance.


    The Influence product development team consists of Design, Fabric sourcing & development, QA and Merchandising teams with a wealth of experience and we are continually reviewing and creating new ranges.


    Numerous manufacturing bases have been established not only in the UK, but overseas including Turkey, China, Pakistan and Bangladesh.


    A large percentage of our products are produced in our own family owned factory in India which again gives us the edge over many other companies.


    In summary, Influence has learnt to marry design with product skills in order to provide an excellent design and manufacturing service on all ladieswear product, together with menswear and childrenswear product as well.
