Perhaps I am just a dumbass, but there are some designer's name I am not sure how to pronounce :ninja: I am hoping the fashionistos/tas of BZ can help me out. Thanks!!! :flower:

First one: Lacoste (is there an accent on the "e"?)

^Yes...hahaha...It was a very memorable scene :hehe: Actually with Italian and Spanish names I have less problems pronouncing b/c I took Spanish for 3 years, and in undergrad uni. we had to watch documentaries in Italian with English subtitles <_< Also, to me Spanish and Italian have very similar words :)

I think you'll have to add the 'r' too... I pronounce it "La-cruà" (hope it made sense!)

All this time I've been saying it wrong <_<

great thread :)

i have a ques too! marithe and francois girbaud. how to pronounce the last name?

Gir - not like in "girl", soft "j" like the ZH in "Zhenya volodina"

baud - like the bo in bottle

:p

It is tough b/c different languages pronounce things differently based on their own pronunciation guide :/

Apparently if you are a real fashionista you have to pronounce the name of the brand according to it's country of origin's pronunciation guide but i've never heard a foreigner pronouncing Vuitton or Chanel (to name a few) right :p

So how do you pronounce Vuitton and Chanel? :p

I pronouce it Vi-t-on (it has a quick "on," right???) and Shan-nelle (Shan like "Sean" or "Shaun" and nelle like the magazine except w/ a "n" in front)

I hate how some people mispronounce "Lauren" <_< It doesn't have an accent!!!
