Hello Mr… errr.. Herrrr-mess

Oops I meant “Er-mez”!

Have you ever been a little confused as to how you should be pronouncing certain designer names? I know I have. If a friend hadn’t told me that Balenciaga was pronounced “Ba-len-ci-a-ga” I would have been forever pronouncing it wrong. What did I call them before I knew better? “ba-len-si-ga”. I think I missed a few syllables there!

Well now you all can get your designer names right from: Comme des Garcons, Ermenegildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo and Thierry Mugler by visiting this fantastic page at About.com that also has audio files you can listen too!
