"You don't mistake Sami Lott when you see it. Sami's a genius; I don't know what else to say about it." says Jonah Monet, who shares work space with designer Sami Lott.

You can see and take part in Lott's genius during her annual Sami Lott Designs trunk show Sept. 1. Expect an impromptu fashion show where guests at the show turn into models.

"It'll be a second-line fashion show. I'm from New Orleans. Every day's a party when you're from New Orleans, so the show will be a party!" Lott says enthusiastically.

The designer believes the must-have item is anything from her shabby chic or black lace collection. "They're must-haves to add to your St. John knits," she says. "You need accent pieces to enhance your wardrobe. This season, I like the eclectic feel, slightly edgy—pieces that can be dressed up or down, from jeans to black tie."

Lott and "her girls," as she calls her customers (who, in turn, refer to themselves as "Sami's girls") would love to see you at the trunk show Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2 to 6 p.m. at Sami Lott Designs and Gallery, 1800 N. State St. Call 601-212-7707.
