pet peeve.

few things grate me like hearing designers names butchered, like channel or lo-is voo-it-on. there are quite a few designers who do have challenging names but here is a guide to the hardest to pronounce.

balenciaga: ba-lin-cee-ah-ga
bottega veneta: Bo-tega Ven-e-ta
bulgari: Bull-gah-ree
burberry prorsum: Bur-bur-ree Pror-some
christian louboutin: Loo-boo-tin
chanel: Shan-el
hermès: Air-mess
louis vuitton: Loo-ee Voo-ee-ton
narcisco rodriguez: Nar-siss-co Ro-dree-gez
yohji yamamoto: Yo-jee Ya-ma-mo-to

When I was younger, I didn't pronounce Givenchy right and I was made fun of for that, so now I make sure I'm pronouncing a name or brand right if I am to say it at all haha

LOL! Thank you! I actually don't say designer's names much since I can't afford to buy their things, but I have been reading some of them wrong, haha ;P
