London Fashion Week hosted the A.W.A.K.E. show, which was founded in 2012 by Russian designer Natalya Alaverdyan. The girl stated that when creating the collection, she turned to the fashionable aesthetics of the Soviet Union, especially to the period of space exploration. Metallic-colored fabrics, silver sequins, balaclava and futuristic details make the clothes look like spacesuits, and black patent leather items refer to the science fiction films by Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick.

The collection includes asymmetric tops, midi skirts, trench coats, long shirt dresses, cardigans, quilted coats and pleated blouses. The prototype of a blue sports jacket was the Olympic sweater that Natalya's father wore in the 80’s. The designer suggests combining it with a brown checkered skirt and bright red sandals with an unusual cut. Despite the fact that the overall palette of the collection remains monochrome, the designer also uses bright colors, a zebra print and check of different sizes.

A special place in the collection is occupied by Pouch bags and quilted pillow bags of various colors and sizes, and sandals with thin straps decorated with fringe.
