Designer Pronunciation

Many designers have hard names to say but here is a guide to the hardest to pronounce.

Balenciaga: ba-lin-cee-ah-ga
Bottega Veneta: Bo-tega Ven-e-ta
Bulgari: Bull-gah-ree
Burberry Prorsum: Bur-bur-ree Pror-some
Christian Louboutin: Loo-boo-tin
Chanel: Shan-el
Hermès: Air-mess
Louis Vuitton: Loo-ee Voo-ee-ton
Narcisco Rodriguez:Nar-siss-co Ro-dree-gez
Yohji Yamamoto: Yo-jee Ya-ma-mo-to

Hope this helped. If their are any other names you can't say, comment and I'll see if I can help.
