Desert Rose is co-founded by sisters, Louise and Mavis Rose. Since childhood, the two shared a lifelong dream of working together and inspiring others.
Louise graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Fashion Textile Management. Mavis obtained her degree in Hospitality Management with a minor in Business from East Carolina University.
Traveling back to their hometown of Wilmington, NC, the sisters decided it was time to pursue their dream by opening a women’s clothing boutique.
