designer names
« on: May 18, 2012, 05:31:20 am »

Magka-aminan na, sino sa inyo ang nagkakamali sa pag-pronounce ng mga designer names na mahirap ispellingin? Sa pagkakatanda ko, narinig ko ang kaibigan kong Fen-Dai ang tawag sa FENDI dati. Wahaha. Sa kagustuhan niang artehan ang pagtawag dito ay naging fail pa pala. Don’t worry because even foreigners commit the same mistakes especially that we have different accents and reading methods. But just an FYI, here are some brands that are usually pronounced mistakenly and their right pronunciations:

Givenchy – Jee-Vahn-Shee not Gee-Ven-Chee
Hermes – Er-Mes and not Her-Mey or Her-Mes
Christian Louboutin – that’s Christian Loo-Vhoo-Tan at hindi Loo-Boo-Teen, ang bantot pakinggan kung ganyan.
Shu Eumura – Shoo Ooy-Moo-Ra
Yves Saint Laurent – isa pa ‘to, lagi akong nagkakamali dito pero ang tama daw ay Eev-Sahnt-Lo-Ran
Christian Lacroix – pronounced as Christian Lak-Wa as in like Lakwatya.
Margiela – Mar-Zhey-La
Emilio Pucci – it should be Poo-Chee not Poo-ki or Poo-see, if not pronounced right, magtutunog bastos. Lol.
Moschino - Mos-Kee-No and not Mo-Shee-No
Herve Leger - Er-Veh Ley-Jehr with a soft “R” on Leger. Haha. That was hard.
Balmain – Bahl-Mahn with a soft “N”.
Lanvin - Lon-Vahn with soft “N” but I actually pronounce it as Lan-Veen because people might not get what I’m talking about.
Guerlain - Ger-Lahn

Happy Reading! :)
