this is not Versace real pronunciation, I HATE when this particular brand is not pronounced correctly. the last "e" has to be pronounced just like the first one...

How do you pronounce the French brand Maje? It has been one of my favorite labels for quite some time now, and I am embarrassed that I still have no idea whatsoever how to pronounce it.

The pronunciation in the video is completely wrong, it's "vair-sah-chay". ^^

I always say "vair-sah-chay", but my friend is always telling me that it's actually "chee", but I'm insistent with "chay".

^I'm pretty sure it's Vair-SAH-chay with r pronounced by flicking the tongue against the front teeth instead of just puckering the lips. I think the Italian "ce" gets pronounced like Chay, since everyone says Dole-chay & Gabbana instead of Dole-chee
How is the u in couture pronounced? i say Ote COO-tyure for Haute Couture but I'm not sure if that's correct. Oh and how are Balmain and Lanvin pronounced? I have no idea if the Ns at the end are pronounced or not or how the soft-n works, nor how the ai is pronounced
Thanks in advance!

I studied French in high school but i'm by no means fluent.

I think you're perfect on the couture pronunciation. At least that's how I was taught it by an American

That's a good question! See if there's a video on youtube of someone saying it, that normally helps (if their talking your language lol)

Thanks, I just went up online and read some articles about them. And I now know neither of them are French. So just say it in English.
