Janet Jackson Launches Fur Fashion Line



Following Blackglama's most successful "What Becomes a Legend Most?" ad campaign to date, featuring Janet Jackson , the brand announced this morning the launch of the Janet Jackson Blackglama collection. The line of luxe fur outerwear and accessories will debut in stores in November.

"The art of fashion is one of my great passions," states Janet Jackson . "I've worked for years to bring a collection into the world. Partnering with Blackglama is very exciting."

The collection is comprised of 15 pieces ranging from coats, jackets, vests, scarves, gloves and other accessories. All contain both classic and contemporary elements and utilize Blackglama mink in conjunction with other materials such as leather.

"When we began preparation for the second Blackglama campaign, Janet became very involved in the design process. The result was an amazing collection of Blackglama garments and accessories that reflect Janet's tremendous sense of style and fashion," said Mike McCrea , VP of Marketing for Blackglama. "This is one of the most visually appealing and innovative Blackglama collections I have seen."

The line is priced for the luxury market and will retail in the Fur Salon at select Saks Fifth Avenue and the Maximilian Fur Salon at select Bloomingdales.

Blackglama collection creator,Yogi Bear, has already come out saying that Janet is Not A Legend Most

This just cannot be real!!  I don't even think hunter/singer Ted Nugent would do this!! 
Disgusting.  Maybe it is faux fur and it's a pun???

It seems like a set up to me.    Not real.

There'll be no more wars
And when all calls
I will answer all your prayers"

This will stir up a lot of trouble. I hope it's a set up, but I'm not so sure. People don't need to wear skins...we come with our own.

I think this pic is from a group called One Voice, that is at the bottom of the pic.  I don't find anything about them yet, but I have gone to the Blackglama page and there are a lot of Janet's pics.  I don't know...to be read rude though, that they are not severely photoshopped, cuz Janet, we just saw is a thick girl.  Muscular...  and the web has her topless and she don't look like those pics when caught sunning...  I'd LOVE to have a perfectly photoshopped pic of me :)
Anyhow...a lot of celebs have done this...there are others pics you can click on.  It must be the thing to do..although their designer apparently don't think Janet is a legend...when compared to the others they've done...?

I sure don't agree with wearing fur..even though I know at one time on earth it was necessary.  But now we have ways to be warm without killing.  I don't see how to love animals and yet kill them.  My husband and I go round and round on his hunting and us raising dogs...

I’m so against killing animals for glamour, /overreacting/ but on the other hand, Janet does look sizzling hot in that black leather lolol/

I probably couldn't be more disappointed with somebody I once respected.

You'd do anything for money. That's what it's all about, I guess. And that is someone who supposedly loves animals. I will never ever be able to understand how someone can have such little compassion for other living creatures. Janet is in her forties and probably well-informed about the cruelty involved with the production of a fur coat. Anyway, it is my opinion that even if the production was cruelty-free, it is never alright to slaughter an animal, especially up to a hundred or more for one item of luxury. That's the sickest and most disgusting thing in the world, I'm sorry. No, I'm not sorry, strike that out.

Janet makes me want to say certain words starting with the letter b... or c... or the like. I won't lower myself, though. Janet's lyrics feature enough dirty language.  >:(


If you'd only come to me, my heart wouldn't be full of sorrow
But now all I can do is hope and pray that you'll come to me
tomorrow

The real price of fur must be measured in deaths--not dollars. To make one fur coat you must kill at least fifty-five wild mink, thirty-five ranched mink, forty sables, eleven lynx, eighteen red foxes, eleven silver foxes, one hundred chinchillas, thirty rex rabbits, nine beavers, thirty muskrats, fifteen bobcats, twenty-five skunks, fourteen otters, one hundred twenty-five ermines, thirty possums, one hundred squirrels, or twenty-seven raccoons.

That's the kind of stuff that makes me ashamed of being human.

This is her choice - a sick one. Her image changed forever. I wonder: will  she ever feel delivering an explanation ?

So is it true? Oh that's so upsetting. I'm totally against fur and I live in Russia, so
we get tons of it and that's painful to witness.. winter or not. Fur as fashion statement is
against everything I believe in. It's a no-no.
Janet, why?.. Money?  :(

Here is a video of the actual photo shoot.
Janet looks amazing.
But fur trade is barbaric. Most US fur companies buy their fur from China and well... you know the rest
Just thinking about the fur industry causes a knot in my chest.

From the begining I didn't want to say a thing,until I had some proof  :( . Since RK put THE PROOF today on this forum,I have to say that I'm DISGUSTED,I'm sorry I know that words can kill,but this time,ENOUGH IS ENOUGH  :cry: . Anything for money,and I see that Janet is the same like the rest .Rich people doesen't care about poor animals,or the poor people of this planet.I'm sorry but from now on ,Janet has declined in my eyes  :( . Actually I'm goona write her some things right now.

You know applehead...I just watched that heart wrenching video from Jonah about being bullied and now thinking of the slaughtering of beautiful animals for vanity and I am very teary tonight.
So I will say goodnight now and go and have a little cry into my pillow about the pain and suffering in the world and how we need a miracle to see change that will make a dent in this monster.

YUK!   

I thought it would turn out to be a high end 'Fake' fur she was selling, not mink.  :|

RK I know how you feel,because I feel the same,vey,very disappointed  :( .I knew Latoya wears this kind of things,but not Janet.Anyway it seems that piece by piece,Jackson family keeps disappoints me .Ofcourse nobody is perfect,but I didn't expect this from them.For example Janet has enough money,so she doesent's need to do ,what she just did,but anyway  :( .Here is her sister Latoya being very,very "ELEGANT" and HAPPY, in her coat  :( ,about 1 week ago:

That's disgusting. Killing animals for elitism and human vanity. So sad. Sad are the YTers' comments below this vid as well - those few who mention the furs got replies comparing furs to food. Sure, how animals that are killed for food is a big issue itself, but fur is for VANITY. Doesn't compare.

Just earlier today watched a video today called "Killing us softly" - nothing to do with furs. It's a lecture by Jean Kilbourne about the image of women in advertising -> sexism etc. There were examples of how black women are often wearing leopard clothes, tiger make up - "as if they were exotic animals".
Gotta say that Janet+fur+Black cat blasting in the video... it is another example of advertisers portraying this image.

I posted the link to the video elsewhere: topic=21627.msg377685#msg377685
