Frankie Welch's Americana introduces readers to the ultimate Washington insider. With charm, skill, and entrepreneurial zeal, Welch worked her way into the closets of first ladies and other political women as a stylist, personal shopper, and designer of campaign fashions. Ashley Callahan's lively telling of the story of Welch's career makes an important contribution to the story of American design.
