In our App of the Week series, we take a look at the newest and coolest apps to see if they’re worth a try.
Have you ever had trouble pronouncing the name of a major fashion designer or brand? The new Speak Chic app will help you master all of those tough terms.
The app has an alphabetical list of almost 300 womenswear, menswear, accessories, cosmetics, shoes and luxury watch brands and designers.
Browse for the name you need, listen to the audio clip for the correct pronunciation and then read the phonetic spelling to perfect it. Search the “Essential Fashion Pronunciations” for the most popular names in the industry.
You can save brands to your “Favorites” menu as well as suggest missing brands that you would like to see added to the app. You’re also able to read up on the history of iconic fashion houses so that you can become educated about the brands you are pronouncing.
Anyone working or interested in the fashion industry will find this app extremely useful. As a fashion student myself, I often find myself coming across French and Italian designers that can be difficult to pronounce. The app should definitely help with this problem and make me more confident in my fashion knowledge.
The Speak Chic App is available at the Apple iTunes Store for $1.99
