Pronunciation: hardest names in fashion

sf10

Hello ladies! Bine v-am gasit pe blog cu un post din categoria #fashionstories. M-am gandit sa extind putin subiectele si temele abordate aici, asa ca pe langa posturile de looks sau events, de acum incolo gasiti si posturi generale de fashion, cum a fost cel cu MET Gala.

Astazi m-am gandit ca ar fi fun sa invatam sa pronuntam corect cele mei grele nume din domeniul modei! Nu doar ca majoritatea au nume ciudate, provenite din fel de fel de tari si limbi, dar de cele mai multe ori acestea sunt oricum dificil de pronuntat, asa ca haide sa ne familiarizam cu ele.

Hello ladies! I welcome you today with a #fashionstories kind of post. I tought I would extend the subjects and themes I usually address here, so from now on, besides the usual looks or evens post, you will find general fashion related stories, like the MET Gala. post.

I tought it would be fun to learn how to correctly pronounce some of the hardest names in fashion! Not only most of them have weird names, originated from various countries or languages, but also, most of them are hard to say anyway so let’s get familiar with these sounds.
