If A.W.A.K.E. might strike you as an easily understandable name, think again. It really stands for « All Wonderful Adventures Kindle Enthusiasm », the same goes for the brand’s founder and artistic director. 

Natalia Alaverdian grew up between East and West. Born in Moscow, she was raised in Belgium, and was appointed Fashion Director for Harper’s Bazaar Russia, where she stayed for five years. Once in London, she started working as a photographer before launching A.W.A.K.E. in 2012, a dream come true. 

Her unique vision landed her a nomination at the 2017 Fashion Awards, as British Emerging Talent.
