Story

We created Rose & Lee Collective with you in mind. You, the woman who is balancing so many things you no longer take time to blow dry your hair.  You, the woman who pours so much of your time and energy into others, you often forget about yourself. You, who may be hustling beside the soccer field or in a boardroom or maybe even both (we women really are pretty incredible, aren’t we?!). At Rose & Lee we believe that you shouldn’t have to choose between doing good and looking and feeling your best. That’s why we’re offering you Style With A Story. 

The story of Rose & Lee begins with Amber Rose and Prisca Lee.  

Amber has been an entrepreneur at heart since the ripe old age of 8 when she’d spend hours of her day planning carnivals for her younger siblings (always aptly timed on family allowance day, of course). In addition to her market savvy, Amber has always had a heart for leadership and service of others, feeling most alive when she’s connecting people and helping others realize their potential and dreams. When she’s not caught up thinking of her next entrepreneurial move, Amber loves exploring new places around the Triangle and being outdoors hiking, biking or on the water.  

Prisca is someone who loves to take risks and jumps in with both feet, like moving to NYC as a 19 year old with a dream and a suitcase. She and her husband are empty nesters, parents to two awesome boys. More and more she thinks of the world we live in and making a difference, however small, through being environmentally conscious and making choices that bring people together. Oh, and she is also a bookworm so she is always up for your recommendations!

These two women from different backgrounds at different stages of their lives had one thing in common: a desire to amplify the stories of others. Having met through their work helping at risk girls in the area, they knew they wanted to make a difference in the world not by flying to the ends of the earth, but by building a community of change right here in North Carolina. In November of 2019 they set up shop in an old house in Downtown Apex and began curating ethically crafted goods that, like Amber and Prisca, each had their own unique story to tell. Since then, we at Rose & Lee have been dedicated to bringing you incredible brands each with their own mission of change and empowerment, from sustainability to human rights.  

We believe it’s when we become a part of each other's stories that true change happens, so we want your help in writing a new story...one that restores power and creates transformation for women locally and around our world. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook @roseandleeco for day-to-day updates on how we’re fulfilling our mission, and we can’t wait to see you at Rose & Lee!

XO,

Amber Rose & Prisca Lee
