20 Fashion Labels You’ve Probably Been Saying Wrong

Fashion news and runway shows are seemingly everywhere, flooding our instagram feeds, TV shows, magazines and some fashion blogs. You probably Just can’t wait to join in the fashion week/show conversation (Yes!!! Can’t wait to see what the designers have in store for spring/summer ), but there is one problem *inserts sad Smiley*; HOW DO I PRONOUNCE THESE DESIGNERS? You may fall in love with BALMAIN seen on Kim kardashian while surfing the web, but would never speak of it aloud for the sheer fear of, well making a mess of the pronunciation.
Not to worry, you can use the guide below to help you be an expert in no time

1. Acne: Ahk-nay (But you can also pronounce it like that annoying skin condition if you like)

2. Badgley Mischka: Badge-lee Meesh-kah

3. Burberry: Burr-bur-ee (No berries here!)

4. Christian Louboutin:  Christian Lou-bou-ton

5. Elie Saab: Ee-Lee Sahb
