Pronunciation [pruh-nuhn-see-ey-shuh n]

We are all able to recognize and distinguish most of the designers’ logos, labels, and styles, but to pronounce the names is an entirely different story. I found a helpful guide on “In my red heels” entry. While others may agree/disagree with some of these pronunciations, I found these to be a great beginning guide for those who would like to expand their lists.
