When a Canadian says, “I love your tuque”, do you know what they mean? A tuque is a type of hat that also goes by the name beanie, chook, tossle cap, and snow hat in other parts of the world.
Apple and the publisher Fachverlag Schiele & Schon released a new application for the iPhone called the Garment and Fashion Dictionary that makes it easier for people who work and play in the fashion industry to avoid making such language blunders.
With the app you can translate words that have to do with clothing, fashion, accessories, design, fabrication, and tailoring into English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.
Once you know the right jargon/lingo/terminology, all you have to do is dress the part and people will start thinking you’re a local!
