HOUSTON (Press Release) — The Bayou City has been introduced to the debonair styles of Paris, France. On Saturday, July 24, Connaissuer Paris hosted a lavish grand opening of their newest store in the Galleria Mall. The high-end gentlemen’s boutique, which is based out of Maryland, is actually internationally known and can boast of customers from around the world, even government officials in the United States and Africa choose to shop at Connaisseur Paris. The City of Houston and Mayor Sylvester Turner also proclaimed July 24 as Connaissuer Paris Day!
Alexis “Fly” Jones of OWN’s Ready to Love, kicked off the event in fly fashion, hosting the red carpet in a chic black and white ensemble with glasses to match. Jones spoke with guests and Houston notables on the carpet about what men’s fashion meant to them and what best described their style. It appears all of the right men were in the right place.
As guests mixed and mingled to the sounds of 93.7 The Beat’s “Hardbody Kiotti,” lite bites and beverages were passed around which were provided by Boozers Bartending and Candi’s Fine Catering. Owners Alain Chaps and Julius Ade had beautiful tailored suits, separate pieces, and cuff links on display for guests to browse through and many attendees even made purchases and tried on a few items while in store.
The brand is vastly working on becoming a household name for those who understand the meaning of dressing for success. So it was only right some Houston notables stopped by: Bryan Carroll- OWN’s Ready to Love Season 3, Recording Artist-Chadd Black , Recording Artist- Pat Williams , Jay Bradley- Own’s Ready To Love Season 3, and Recording Artist Dray Tate.
Houston, it appears Paris is here to stay!
