The idea of "not-finished" comes back in art alternately and every time brings along a deep research for the mental roots of ideas and their development in the creative process. Michelangelo did it with his last statues' production, Martin Margiela did it with his deconstructed garments with visible stitching, and Natalia Alaverdian does it now with the last collection of A.W.A.K.E. MODE. This is not a novelty then, but it never gets old. Maybe because the mysteries behind artistic creations ask to come back on the topic many many times being hard to explain. Changing point of view can be very useful. And about this collection we can't but use the name of artistic creation, because the designer seems to take clothes for her wardrobe, but them into pieces and then sew them together again, with no apparent order but following the transitional inspiration only.

The final result is a Frankenstein-style collection, with all the consequences, vulnerability and sweetness included.

Pants/skirt and skirt/pants, some blazer are cut in the middle and the bottom part becomes part of the matching pants, pumps have only half of the toe and listed sandals are different from one foot to the other. Creativity and fantasy, with some carelessness in the raw edges of the silky dresses. The desire to create fashion as it comes to the creative mind, according to the stream of consciousness.

This process can be also ascribed into a sustainable future, where everything is fine as much as it creates less waste possible. All is fair, even take dismissed clothes, cut them and create something completely new. A beautiful and interesting show, full of inspirations.
