 Home-Based Business Opportunities for Fashion LoversBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Do you love fashion? Would you love to have your own fashion boutique, but don’t have the funds to invest in a brick and mortar storefront?

No problem.

The direct sales industry has made it easier than ever to have your very own home-based business within the fashion industry. In my opinion, direct sales clothing companies geared towards women are some of the best in home-party plans out there.

Not only do most women LOVE new clothes, but it is something that every woman needs and that is regularly replaced and updated. Plus, when you’re selling clothes through the direct sales model, items tend to have a higher price point so your overall earnings will be higher.

If you’ve been thinking about launching your own home-based fashion business, here are 14 direct sales clothing companies to check out.
