Is the sentence in bold correct grammatically? I mean can we use "no" and "any" together?

There's no longer any need
to wait for a change of season (for example, from autumn to winter) to see a new collection of clothes, because fashion retailers are introducing new lines of clothing on a monthly, or even weekly, basis.

Is this sentence OK too? I've learned that we can only use "no" alone in a sentence or " not any"

There's not any need to wait for a change of season (for example, from autumn to winter) to see a new collection of clothes.

If we remove "no longer", will it still make sense? I think it won't.

The sentence is fine as you have written it. I would remove "(for example, from autumn to winter) as it is not necessary.

There's not any need to wait for a change of season to see a new collection of clothes.

You could replace "not any" with "no" if you want to.
