Designer names pronounced right

Designer names pronounced right

Ever embarrassed yourself in public mispronouncing a famous designer’s exotic name?

Admittedly, some names are in fact hard to utter just like Christian Wijnants (kri-stee-ahn vine-ants) or Francesco Scognamiglio (fran-ces-ko- sko-gna-mi-glio).


Finally, Fashionista has now accepted that long overdue challenge to enlight us linguistically.


Remember Nomi Malone from Showgirls proudly stating she got her stunning dress from Ver-say-ce?



Uh-oh …


This verbalisation helper produces relief.




Here are some examples that will turn you into a real fashion expert.


Alber Elbaz, creative director, Lanvin: ahl-bare el-bahz,


Ann Demeulemeester: ann de-mule-eh-meester,


Mary Katrantzou: mar-ee ka-tran-zoo,


Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski, creative director, Hermès: nah-dej van-hee sy-bool-ski,


Olivier Rousteing, creative director, Balmainoh-liv-ee-aye rhoos-tain.
