Prabal Gurung's name has been bandied around in fashion circles for years now—but that doesn't mean the average shopper knows how to pronounce it. Our sister site asked people on the street to give it a try, then got CFDA CEO Steven Kolb to show us how it's really done. This is the first in a series, so if you've got any burning fashion pronunciation questions, feel free to leave them in the comments. [Racked National]
