Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In a new series, we're brushing up on our fashion diction with a little help from our friends. Today, we take a look at New York label Cushnie et Ochs. Started in 2009 by Parsons grads Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, the brand is known for chic dresses with a cool-girl edge that has attracted the attention of women from Michelle Obama and Rihanna. After the jump, Carly and Michelle demonstrate the right (and wrong) way to pronounce their company's name.
