Tips: Berlin Fashion Week

 

We do not need to remind you that this week is all about fashion, darling! But the schedule is dense and impossible to coordinate with the less fabulous daily life, so we are bringing you a narrowed choice based mostly on the criteria: 1.fun and 2.free. Naturally, we had our third eye open for spotting the events with free drinks and other goodies, but more importantly for the ones where Fashion meets her weird sister Art. 

TUESDAY 14.01

19.00 Alter Angle - Exhibition @ SomoS

WHY: With this exhibition timed to coincide with Berlin Fashion Week, Art House SomoS takes a different look at fashion and presents artists who draw from fashion, individuality and the pursuit of beauty to explore an alternative angle on style and creativity. The exhibition shows art by 7 artists who work with various media. The opening will be musically supported by dj Sander Markey.
