Stop Saying Versace like 'Ver-say-see.' It's 'Ver-sah-chee.'


I don't consider myself a fashion snob, but it is definitely a huge pet peeve of mine when someone tries to impress me with their couture lingo and mispronounces designer names. I can't help but simultaneously chuckle and cry inside when someone says 'Ver-say-see' for Versace when they really mean 'Ver-sah-chee.' After conducting some research, I have compiled a list of commonly mispronounced designer names. After debunking all of your linguistic conundrums I expect all of my RemChic monsters to go out into the world honoring the phonetics of these designers' names. For a more in depth list, check out tristinstyling.
