In an open letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, more than 400 executives and creatives said that the current agreement with the European Union will decimate the £35 billion fashion and textile industry, with new taxes and tariffs, as well as travel restrictions, making it increasingly difficult to conduct business.
