  Bullied because I don't wear designer clothes
Updated 24 February 2003, 09.34
Shopping for clothes
Michelle is tired of people judging others on the way they dress - especially if they are not wearing designer clothing.

"I am sick of the prices that shops charge for brand names.

For example you can buy some trainers for 70 but I think you're paying around 50 just for the name.

Think you're poor

Because the prices are so high some people get bullied because they can't afford them.

At my school if you haven't got the latest fashion people think you're poor so they bully you.

I get bullied because I can't afford all these 'expensive items' and it makes me feel really upset.

I feel strongly about this and I want something to be done about it.

I feel sorry for all the people that get bullied because of this."

Michelle, 12, Stalybridge
