Dear Retailer, Dear Agent or Distributor, 

May we ask you to sign this petition to add your voice to the request of European Parliament members Mr. Guy Verhofstadt and Mrs. Hilde Vautmans which they addressed to the European Commissioner of Internal Market on the 23d of March 2020. 

Our urgent requests are :  

***To postpone the Spring Summer 2020 Seasonal sales to the 1st of August with no discounts or promotions allowed from now up to the end of July. 

***To postpone the Fall Winter 2020 Seasonal sales to the 1st of February 2021 with no discounts or promotions allowed from the 1st of September 2020 up to the end of January. 

***The same measures to apply for all retailers offering Fashion items in the European market (including online players). 

Only these measures, allowing retailers to sell at full retail price, for at least the coming ten months will avoid the mass closure of small, medium and large fashion retailers throughout Europe and limit the economic consequences for employees,  suppliers and the fashion business as a whole.
