Foxglove Posted March 8, 2006 Share Posted March 8, 2006 I finally got the chance to watch last weeks "Hotel Babylon" and it was good to see Joan Collins draped in fox once again. One thing I noticed is that at no point in the story was ANY reference made to her furs. Absolutely nothing, not even from the pert little receptionist with the attitude problem. Over the past few years, whenever a British program included a scene with either real or fake fur, one of the characters would tend to say "I hope that isn't real fur" or something similar. The absence of this in a recent production like Hotel Babylon suggests that the media may be going off the idea of knocking fur-wearing at every opportunity. Perhaps they are coming round to the idea that, once again, furs are a normal and desirable part of life associated with glamour and wealth. This may be wishful thinking based on just one example and I could be reading between the lines too much here but it would be interesting to hear if anyone else has noticed the same sort of thing in their TV viewing anywhere in the world.
