SCOTUS RECOGNIZES SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the 14th amendment must recognize same-sex marriage on Friday. It is also ruled that same-sex unions will be recognized even if their ceremonies were performed in different states. The Obergefell v. Hodges case in court had challenged the constitutionality on state bans on same-sex marriages.
The fashion world responded quickly to this landmark SCOTUS decision on social media.
Today not only am I a proud New Yorker, I am a proud American. Wisdom of the Supreme Court and LGBT community that have fought for generations led us to this momentous and emotional day. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to all of them. After all it is about Human Rights xPG. #SCOTUS #gaymarriage #legal #lovewins #humanrights #equality #pride #USA

WWD believes that the anticipating unions will produce a significant increase in the wedding industry, which already now rings up $4.9 mil in women’s and men’s sales.
