About P05K™


How It Started

Rosalee, an imaginative soul endowed with both ADHD and aphantasia, called the bustling city of Portland, Oregon, her home. Even though her mind was a hub of ceaseless ideas, she was unable to conjure images in her mind's eye. However, her determination propelled her to materialize her abstract thoughts into a palpable reality.

The challenges of ADHD often led to Rosalee grappling with a sense of chaos and disarray, making it hard for her to keep a tab on her possessions. Fed up with the constant misplacement of things, she decided to harness her inexhaustible energy to invent a remedy. This gave birth to her game-changing creation—the Pocket Skirt.

The Pocket Skirt was a harmonious blend of fashion, comfort, and functionality. Designed to be worn over existing attire, it boasted a multitude of pockets, offering ample room for systematic storage and safeguarding of everyday essentials. The skirt's practical aspect perfectly complemented its trend-setting design.

Not only did Rosalee's Pocket Skirt serve as a convenient tool to keep her belongings organized and within reach, but it also provided a visually slimming effect. Its design was a testament to her creative prowess, sporting colorful patterns and striking fabrics. It soon turned into a coveted accessory for those desiring a blend of chic and orderliness in their lives.


Rosalee Rester is Portland artist turned serial entrepreneur. Her infatuation with art goes back (way back). At age six, Rosalee watched with fascination as her second cousin Betty showed her how to press paint between two pages to create magical scenes and places. Her six-year-old resolve: recreating that wonderment.

Rosalee attended UC Davis, where she studied rhetoric and art, then went on to get an MBA from San Francisco State University. 

After the birth of her daughter, Rosalee launched Baby Wit, a baby clothing business featuring local artists and musicians.

The birth of her son in 2007 marked the inception of Yankers, a line of fastener-free baby rompers. Amid the 2019 pandemic, when the world was adopting a casual style, Rosalee introduced a line of fastener-free Union Suits, or one-piece long underwear for women.

With the invention of the MooNees™, she embarked on a journey of innovation and creativity. Several years into her progress, she was faced with an unexpected challenge when someone claimed a patent against something she'd created years before. Recognizing the need to protect her intellectual property, she took decisive action and filed her own patent for her Pocket Skirt, a unique and inventive concept that she had developed.

Rosalee's professional sewing skills were honed under the tutelage of Andrea Moore Beaulieu, who taught her the fine details down to the importance of 1/32nd of an inch.

Armed with this knowledge, she launched rational.clothing in 2018, specializing in comfortable knitwear for women. The brand rapidly earned acclaim for its ability to effortlessly merge style and comfort, providing a powerful alternative to any notions of frumpiness.

With support from a city of Portland grant, Rosalee launched Makers Outlet, a pop-up shop in November 2021. Fueled by her love for sample sales of handmade goods, Makers Outlet offered samples and discounted clothing from local vendors. 

Under her brand R3G3N3R8™, she crafts new designs from materials such as organic cotton, bamboo, and hemp, creating garments that are as eco-friendly as they are stylish.

She also breathes new life into pre-loved clothes by mending and creatively revamping them. It's a comprehensive approach to sustainable fashion that reimagines the life cycle of our clothes, proving that sustainability and style can coexist beautifully.

In her professional realm, Rosalee handles the retail website for her favorite basketball team. Yet, she still finds time for passion projects, the most recent one being the launch of P05K™ in July of 2023.
