Fashion Week can be all sorts of serious - but we think fashion is supposed to be fun! Do we actually care who’s walking for Chanel and if Kendall Jenner’s made the cut? No. But we DO care about Victoria Beckham's latest line, Burberry's front row and Topshop Unique. Here’s the fashion shows we (and everyone else) should actually give a hoot about.

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, London Fashion Week kickstarts on Friday and a new season is back with aplomb, but we can't help thinking, jaw-dropping-ly good outfits aside, are we already feeling fashion fatigued?

While there is so much talent out and about during Fashion Week season, there's only so much style we can humanly compute. So if you don't know where to start when it comes to Fashion Week mania, just follow our lead...

​Here's the fashion week shows we actually need to care about.

Chanel

Icebergs transported from Scandinavia to Paris, vapour puffing clouds, carousels fitted with life-size quilted Chanel arm candy and an actual supermarket? Such staging could only happen at Chanel.

No one does ready-to-wear spectacle quite like Karl Lagerfeld. If there were such thing as a fashion god, he’d be it. Bible.

Victoria Beckham

She’s the chicest amongst them all (forgive us Anna Wintour). Ever since she designed that baggy cornflower cloud dress we were done for and we’ve never looked back.

Looser shapes, monochrome palettes and precision tailoring make VB’s collection accomplished and wearable whatever the season. And plus points go to VB for having a front row that will be sure to include two of Earth's most adored people - David and Harper. Swoon.

Topshop Unique

Unique by name, unique by nature. It’s like all of our department store dreams multiplied, came true and then fused together to make Cara Delevingne walk them down the runway.

Undone models, mules, statement jackets, a runway made of fake grass, Kate Moss and Sir Philip Green on the frow and a collection we can ultimately buy from our fave high street store? No wonder we're Topshop obsessed.

Burberry Prorsum

Where would a girl be without swooning/ferving (that’s fashion perving) on Burbs? It’s British fashion at its best and Christopher Bailey knows it. Why else would he take his bow underneath a shower of tender English rose petals?

Burberry and Bailey go together like peanut butter and jelly, if we could butter them up and put them together in a sandwich we totally would. And if you’re reading this Chris, those sorbet shades and jewel encrusted duster coats you delivered for SS14. We’re still not over them. Give us more of those.

Note: Sometimes Harry Styles rocks up but that's no biggy and it certainly hasn't influenced our decision to watch the Burberry show AT ALL. This is strictly about fashion.

Vivienne Westwood

There are a few fashion shows are so creative they blow our freaking minds and Vivienne Westwood's one of them.

Who else unfurls a banner calling for climate change at the end of their show, sends green faced models down the catwalk and makes Lily Cole do an interpretative dance? This isn't just a fashion show it's the Westwood theatre of chaos. And we love her for it.

Alexander McQueen

Nothing compares to McQueen drama: The invites, Sarah Burton, a model covered in moths. It's easily the most awaited show of the season.

Celine

The coats, the oversized silhouettes and the less-is-more formula, it looks like menswear but it's undeniably feminine. We don't know how she does it but Phoebe Philo is the one to beat. Fashion. Week. Gold.

Dolce & Gabbana

When you need a healthy injection of sparkle and sweet floral blossoms in your life who you gonna call? D&G! Ain't no way we're about to miss those dresses.
