Selden Market, located at 208 E. Main St. in Downtown Norfolk, is pleased to announce its newest tenant, Gallagher, will open on July 10.
Sisters Sarah Gallagher and Hannah Westergaard founded Gallagher Apparel, LLC in 2018 based on their love for dresses and the hope of a kinder garment industry. After years of sewing and designing her own dresses, designer Gallagher studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology where she discovered the marred history of the industry’s practices and sought to create a company that upheld people and products through ethical and sustainable means. Gallagher is a made-to-order company, so although styles and fabrics are predetermined, it strives to reduce textile waste by making products as they are ordered.
Through tradeshows and trunk shows, Gallagher has fostered wholesale partnerships while also growing its online community via email and social media. The company’s niche has been to fill the void in the sustainable fashion market with classic, timeless styles as well as fun colors and prints. Gallagher offers garments their customers love, at the same time educating them about the importance of sustainability and ethical fashion practices.

“I am excited to join the Selden Market community because being an entrepreneur can be quite lonely at times,” said Gallagher. “I think in business and in life, the most rewarding thing is the relationships one develops. I look forward to forming meaningful relationships not only with my customer base in Norfolk but with my fellow tenants and dream makers at Selden.”
