Ballerific Fashion: How to Properly Pronounce the Luxury Designers You Wear, So You Don’t Get Side-Eyed

Many of us love designer pieces from Givenchy, Christian Louboutin, Balmain and more. It is one thing to love designer clothing but what’s the point if you can’t properly pronounce the designer labels you wear?

There is nothing more embarrassing than wearing high end clothing and mispronouncing the designer’s name. If you want to live the Ballerific Lifestyle, it’s imperative that you learn the pronunciation of the hottest designer labels. Thanks to Harper’s Bazaar, they have broken it down from A-Z, so now you can stop saying Guh-Vin-Chee and pronounce it as it was intended,  Zjee-Von-She or Ball- Main and pronounce it as bahl-mahhhhn.
