Little girl convinces fashion brand to put pockets on girls’ jeans with amazing letter


A seven-year-old from the US has convinced fashion retailer Old Navy to start putting real pockets on girls’ jeans.

Women around the world have complained about the lack of pockets on jeans designed for women and girls, with pockets often fake, sewn up imitations – when they’re included at all.

It’s an issue that Kamryn Gardner decided to write a persuasive letter about for her Year One writing assignment earlier this year.

She penned the letter to US fashion store Old Navy, imploring the retailer to reconsider the issue of girls pockets.

“Dear Old Navy, I do not like that the front pockets of the girls jeans are fake,” she wrote in the letter, which her school shared to Facebook.

“I want front pockets because I want to put my hands in them. I also would like to put things in them.

“Would you consider making girls jeans with front pockets that are not fake. Thank you for reading my request.”

At first, it didn’t look like she’d get a reply to her note, but soon a representative from Old Navy’s kid’s department got in touch with the seven-year-old.
