New York Fashion Week is about to wrap up and I don’t know about you but my social media feed has been a constant scroll of ‘candid’ street style shots and Boomerangs of Bella Hadid looking like an absolute goddess while stomping down the runway.
Fashion week looks like a lot of fun, but for us mere mortals, it’s can often feel like a harsh reminder of all the clothes, front rows and star-studded parties we might never experience.
If you aren’t part of the upper echelons of the farshun world, it can be hard to keep up with the Joneses, especially when it comes to brand names. There are so many designers these days, and if you dare pronounce their names wrong in front of a fashion week veteran – daggers will be shot in your direction. But does it really matter if we don’t always nail the names?
Here are all the fancy fashion names we’re probably all messing up because, unlike the runway, real life ain’t perfect!

“Zhawn Pawl Goh-tee-ay“
Yves Saint Laurent
“Eve Sahn Loh-rahn“
“B C B G max-az-ree-uh“
