Many designer evening gowns cost $1,000 or more, placing them far outside the financial reach of many customers. This creates more than ample opportunity for the determined entrepreneur to start an evening gown rental business, which can be easily conducted from a home based location. Marketing the business can be as simple as creating a full-color catalog that features pictures and descriptions of the evening gowns for rent and distributing the catalogs throughout the community where they'll generate the most interest in the service. Once established, an evening gown rental business should receive a vast amount of referrals from satisfied customers, not to mention a lot of repeat business.
