Young people aged 13-17 are more likely to buy their clothes and fashions via the internet than people in the 22-32 age group, a new survey published today claims.

Despite people aged 22 and over more likely to shop online, when it comes to buying clothes over the internet, only 9 per cent buy online, compared to 18 per cent for the 13-17 age group.

The study was carried out by Element Holdings Inc, a youth focused market-research company that gathers most of its information online and surveys people aged from 13-32 around the world, on their spending and online behaviour patterns.
