My name is Julius Ade, Co-Owner of Connaisseur Paris Boutique. I was born in Yaounde and raised in Buea, Cameroon. I migrated to the United States in 1997. I Served in the US Army from 1998-2004.I obtained a degree in Nursing in May of 2004 from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. I practiced full time as in Registered Nurse from 2004 until 2010 when my passion for fashion grew tremendously with the help of my personal fashion supplier at that time, and best friend Mr Alain Chaps.

That same year of 2010, I partnered with him, Mr Alain Chaps, also a US Army Veteran, and we created a clothing company that we named Connaisseur Paris, dealing strictly with European fashion Men’s fashion. We have since expanded to European women fashion products. In September of 2013 we opened our first store in Silver Spring, Maryland. I’m now a full-time fashion designer and promoter, designing and producing luxury European Mens suits, shirts, blazers, shoe, belts etc.
We are launching our second store this June in Potomac/Gaithersburg area in Maryland.
Our ultimate goal is to open stores in every major city across the United States that carry our line of products, while also producing for and supplying other major stores across the U.S.

I also love music, and I’ve taught music and led choirs in Churches since the age of 16. Currently I’m the choir master of a choir named Bethel Choir(Makom) at Silver Spring Presbyterian church.

I’m happily married with two kids.
