Pronouncing designer names can be a bit tricky. So I’ve put together a list of the some common one’s and others you’ll come across at some point.

A simple example is Balmain- where what you see, in terms of pronunciation, isn’t what you get. The correct pronunciation is Bahl-mah.

So, dive in and save yourself the embarrassment that comes with misprnunciation.
