Pronounce it right

I admit I'm not really a signature brand type of girl, for me whatever the brand is as long as comfort is still the key. I've only had few designer stuff and mostly I bought them from vintage stores and thrift shops. I've known some signature stuff and believe me some of them are hard to pronounce, we find a hard time pronouncing these signature labels and the designer's name itself. I'm not hypocrite and honestly I am a victim myself when it comes to pronouncing some of the big names. Good thing Kristine Roa from Instyle Cebu posted hints and tips and mini guide on how to pronounce your favorite fashion designer's name.

This would be a big help to those fashion starters like me. Not only we can familiarize ourselves on how to pronounce it but we can actually say it loud with confidence knowing we know them not because we are born raised fashionista's but because we do love, follow and wear these highly fashionable branded stuff.

Here are some of the common ones:

Balenciaga (Bah-len-see-AH-gah)
Bebe (Bee-Bee)
Bulgari (bull-ga-ree)
Cartier - Car-ti-yey
Celio – Chel-yo
Chanel - Sha-nel
Chloe - Klo-ay
Christian Dior - Kree-styang/ Christiane – Krees-tyan Dee-yor
Christian Louboutin - Kree-styan Loo-bi-TUHN (listen to JLo’s new single!)
Dolce & Gabbana: DOLE-chay and gab-BON-a
Estee Lauder – Es-tay Lo-der
Clarins – Clarans
Giorgio Armani - Gjyerjo-Ahrmanee
Girbaud – Jir-bow
Herm├Ęs: AIR-mehz
Kerastase – Ke-ras-tass
Lanvin : lon-vawn OR lon-vahn
Miu Miu - Mew-Mew
Moschino: mo-SKEEN-o
Nike – Nay-ki
Salvatore Ferragamo: Sal-va-TOH-reh Fair-a-GAH-moe
Shu Uemura – Shoe Ooh-eh-moorah
Tag Heuer – Tag Ho-yer
Xoxo - So-So
