I believe the same as Harrison. Is there a U shaped plastic strip all along the top of the window? The curtains have U shaped clips sewn at intervals along the top edge.
Like this?

These hook over the plastic strip over the window. Look for awning curtain clips on ebay

Ah.. New territory.. Indeed.. for curtains they look like a slide on fixing...
I am in New learning territory here! Not like Harrison or other awnings then. Motent owners need to reply..
There is an Awnings Facebook group!

I have the same on one of mine. It came with the original yellow curtains as in the picture above, which attached with these:

EDIT:
Looks like you can get something similar on ebay:
