This is great but I must correct Moschino. I did an internship there, and it is..
Mos-keen-o .. if you can tell the difference? But then again, it might vary depending on ones accent!
wrote @ July 9th, 2008 at 8:25 AM
you forgot Yves Saint Laurent
I believe the pronounciation of Mo-ski-no is the same sound of Mos-keen-o.
Thanks D, I have added Yves Saint Laurent. Good spot, how could I have missed someone who was a major influence on the fashion industry!

How do you pronounce Perse in James Perse? Is it just like “purse”, or something else?
Hello Cynthia, great question! Actually, it is pronounced in two slight variations. Purse is one of them (as in a lady’s purse) and the other is the first ‘e’ in Perse is pronounced like the ‘e’ in the word pet. I hope that helps. Thanks for responding!

Growing up in the 80s, the pronunciation of Aigner was always butchered. What is the correct pronunciation of Etienne Aigner ?

Hi there, if I remember correctly, the associate at the Ermenegildo Zegna Outlet Store outside of Tuscany, told me that “gil” in Ermenegildo is prounounced “jeel,” like “jack and” jill,” not “geel” like “go”
So it’s actually Er-men-a-jeel-do. Hope this helps.
Thank you Michelle! You are correct as well. I was thinking readers would read “geel” as they do “gee,” the expression, which is pronounced like “jeel.”

How do you pronounce chic? Although this may seem minor – there is no “sh” sound in spanish. So would you please give proper pronunciation for chic?
wrote @ March 24th, 2010 at 7:11 PM
Thank you so much. This is a great help. How do you say Indecence? This is a fragrance by Givenchy.
The origin of the word “chic” is French.

how do i say ‘Longchamp’ the correct way
wrote @ May 23rd, 2010 at 12:08 PM
Here you go: Longchamp: Lon-chahn. It is a French pronounciation.
Such a great idea!
How about Skovgaard, as in Camilla Skovgaard??
This domain seems to get a great deal of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to give info on is the most important thing.

Great article and beautiful shoes! I can now shop for them with confidence, thanks to you, I will pronouce Louboutin properly when making my purchase. I love these shoes. What type of outfit would you suggest wearing with these magnificant zapatos?
wrote @ March 17th, 2012 at 8:33 AM
I'm so glad I found this site. I have a friend who always says, "long-champ," like she's correcting me when we talk and I knew she was wrong. I know it shouldn't bother me but it gets under my skin. On a side note, I can't understand the craze around carrying what is essentially a travel tote meant to fold up into your real purse.
Thanks for visiting Ms.GucciSu. I am glad you found my designer pronunciation guide helpful!

Thanks Ben! I love to get readers input. I will verify andrepost once the pronunciation verdict is in!

Love this site! So useful. But do you know how to pronounce Causse, as in the glove designer? I thought it might be like coh-ss, but I’m really not sure.
Hello Andy, the pronunciation of Causse rhymes with the word house, but with a hard “C” like in the word cat. I hope that helps!

Love love love this!! How about Le Metier de Beaute? I know metier is like meh-tee-ay but is beaute like byoot, boot or boot-ay?
Hello Olive, thanks for asking! You are absolutely correct about the pronunciation of Métier. There is an accent aigu over the last “e” (beauté). The “e” with the accent has a strong ”a” sound. The pronunciation of beauté is buh-tay.
