Recently I was privy to a conversation between two fashionistas.
Fashionista #1: Girl, I am so in LOVE with my new handbag!
Fashionista #2: It is nice. Who designed it?
Fashionista #1: Pro-neeza Shu-ler.
Me (thinking): No…she didn’t just say that? You spent $1500 on a handbag and you can’t pronounce the designers names. It’s Proenza Schouler.
Fashion designer names can be tricky, but if you’re going to spend thousands on clothing and handbags it’s probably a good idea that you know how to pronounce the designer’s name correctly. Allison McNamara to the rescue with her handy guide. You may discover you’ve been pronouncing a few names incorrectly yourself!
