Have you ever been in a bad situation attempting to sound fancy and knowledgeable while pronouncing the top designers names wrong?? Do you ever cringe hearing your friend talk about Hermès articulating it as ‘her-meez’, or Mui Mui as ‘Mwee-Mwee’? I know I have experienced such. So the next time you find yourself ~casually~ talking about the following designers with your friends, you will now know how to properly pronounce these:

  • Anna Sui – Anna Swee
  • Azzedine Alaia - Azz-a-dean a-lie-ah
  • Badgley Mischka: badge-lee meesh-kah
  • Balenciaga: bah-len-see-ah-gah

  • Christian Louboutin: christian loo-boo-tan
  • Comme des Garçons: comb dey gah-sown
  • Dolce & Gabbana: dol-chey and gab-ana
