Frankie Welch and the First Lady

Frankie Welch and Betty Ford shared a friendship and a love of fashion. Welch, who was from Georgia, opened a dress shop in Alexandria, Virginia, in 1963 that became a social and shopping mecca among Washington’s political elite. When she debuted her first scarf design, the Cherokee Alphabet, Ford was one of her models.
