Have you Ever found yourself stuck for words when trying to pronounce some of the trickier jaw breaking  names in the fashion encyclopaedia? Don’t we all. So if you or  anyone  you know who has ever come across  Salvatore Ferragamo or stuttered  their way through Maison Martin Margiela, Mammypi has done an  ultimate cheat sheet  from around the web to help you master the dialects of the designer alphabet. Some may not be accurate so ask the native speaker for a better pronunciation.
