Nobody doubts that Berlin Fashion Week is chock-full of serious beauty. But going beyond the bubble of the most immediate and commercial events is a must if you want to make the best use of the season. For that, get over to the Places + Faces Party, hosted by the über-current but down-to-earth St. Georg. With a vibe that seems like it's equally inspired by dive bars and your cool cousin's Tumblr, this is the go-to spot for those ready to swap standard runway glamour for some local grit. Any city can set up a few sponsored stunts, but far fewer know how to revel in raw style quite like Berlin.


A fashion week party that's just the right amount of offbeat.
To see local style on display in its natural habitat.
Ritterstraße 24, Berlin 10969
Jan. 17, 10 p.m.-4 a.m.
