1. Victoria Beckham
This season the collection has evolved. Most talked about were the new accessories – and flat shoes! The military coat is a staple item for your spring wardrobe. All of which will no doubt become a hit when Mrs Beckham opens her first London store later this year. Lock up your purses ladies, there’s plenty to save for…

2. Versus
Designer Anthony Vaccarello created a capsule collection that rocked. It was mostly black, dusted with gold details featuring body-con dresses and separates, belted, buckled and clasped together with the Versace gold emblem and the signature safety pins. In true rock-chic style the evening finished with a live performance by St Vincent

3. Opening Ceremony
A one act play – 100% Lost Cotton, replaced the traditional show. Written by Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill and guest starring model Karlie Kloss in her acting debut as herself. She gets our vote as most fun model of the week. The collection highlight were the custom prints of keyboard characters in bold colours

4. Coach
Meet “Buster”the devilishly cute creature that lives in your hand bag, and star of Coach’s s/s15 collection. He featured on prints, knitwear and bags. The tutti frutti coloured platform clogs will undoubtedly become summer 2015’s most coveted shoe.

5. Tommy Hilfiger
Set against a flower filled music festival backdrop, inspired by The Beatles “Sgt, Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club”. The rock-star aesthetic was further embraced with metallic and cute chiffon baby doll dresses worn under shearling coats heavily featuring star prints. Next season’s festival looks are well and truly sorted

6. Belstaff
Not strictly a show but the legends-in-the-room count (2) means this launch event of ‘Off Road’ – a beautiful coffee table book shot by Peter Lindbergh (legend 1) of David Beckham (legend 2) wearing the new Belstaff collection makes it to the top ten. What a dream afternoon!

7. Marc by Marc Jacobs
Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier know how to sprinkle a little british cool over a collection. The set was a warehouse rave, entitled “Hard-core idealism” models hair was scrapped into Bjork style top knots and models entered the runway through a speaker sound system in latex polka dot skirts worn with crop tops

8. Michael Kors
There’s no doubt Kors knows how to create the perfect summer wardrobe for the Hamptons lifestyle. Boundless gingham, rope sandals, skirts and dresses scattered with daffodil and geramiums embroidery and a dusting of summer sequins

9. Proenza Schouler
American sportswear 2.0. Parkas were laser cut or appeared in block coloured leather while the hand knitted polo tops were dissected by a leather panel, top of our wish list were the cutaway argyle sweaters worn with a fringe skirt. Super cool

3.1 Philip Lim. With the retail arm of his business expanding; a flagship store in New York, and a London store to add to the roster all that would complete his run was a successful catwalk show, tick that box too. Standout pieces were Lim’s robed tied tops, slouchy trousers and sculpted textural tops Photograph: Getty Images
