Reviews

Unique selectons but contain mispronunciations

(2 stars)

In the very first article I listened to, "Pretty things to be Worn", the reader has mispronounced many of the terms. Yes some are archaic, but many are still used in the modern fashion industry--such as 'moire' and 'grosgrain'. Please dear Reader, research the proper pronunciation of unusual words--you may be teaching someone new.
