Designer Pronunciation Cheat Sheet

NYFW is here again (I can't believe it.. September feels like yesterday). There's more hype about fashion week in September than in February, but personally I like this one better because it's all fall stuff and from previous posts you can clearly tell that I love fall fashion. Boots, scarves, sweaters.. what's not to love?

Harper's Bazaar (one of my many monthly magazine obsessions.. but Harper's Bazaar is definitely high up on my favs list) gives us a cheat sheet on pronouncing designer names because how many times have you heard someone that's relatively fashion savvy say "ya-ves saint lorent" or "her-mes"? It's impossible to nail all of these foreign names, so we're lucky Harper's is on top of things! There's part one, which is comprised of the most mispronounced and well-known designers, and then part two because we still couldn't get it right. This list is shorter and has less-known people, but it's good to know! You never know who you may run into *cough* Tim Gunn *cough*. I wish. You wouldn't want to be caught dead in a conversation with someone like that and pronounce Marchesa "mar-chess-uh".
