A/W 07-08 and A/W 08-09 were both terrific; I hadn't been into fashion for very long at that point, and so the collections that were being shown inspired me endlessly. I remember a lot of incredible shows, notably:

A/W 07-08:
Giambattista Valli - was probably one of the most original, luxurious and yet entirely wearable winter collections I have ever seen.
Yves Saint Laurent - The volumes, the textures, the colours, the styling, the dresses, the tailoring, IMO the best YSL by Stefano Pilati collection.
Chanel - The colours and styling were gorgeous
Christian Dior - One of the last Dior ready-to-wear collections that Galliano showed that had a hint of his decadent, dark side.

A/W 08-09:
Giambattista Valli - 'Red riding hood eats the wolf' - My favourite collection of all time. Introduced me to his Balenciaga influence. Dark, voluminous, embellished, surprising, original. I crave to see Valli back at this stage. It went downhill towards shift-dresses from here.
Yves Saint Laurent - bowl-cut wigs, feather dresses, the introduction of the 'tribute' boot, great colour palette. Again, quite dark, but extremely beautiful, set to an amazing soundtrack.
Chanel Haute Couture - Incredibly classic and simple but some stunningly modern and original pieces, fantastic frame-headwear, suits and triangular-shaped dresses.
Balenciaga - I was incredibly inspired by Ghesquiere after his S/S 08 show, the voluminous patent plastics, the jewellery, the shoes.. that one black and white dress that swiftly became my favourite piece of the season.

I could go on, this latter season was the best in my memory.

While I agree with most of the people here (2003, 2005 and 2006 being wonderful years for fashion) I think it is noticeable that many people often find themselves drawn to seasons that took place when they started getting into fashion. Everything seemed new and exciting and after a while you kind of get used to everything and things repeat. I am no exception and think that f/w 05 and f/w 06 are the most divine seasons imaginable those were the first seasons and experienced in fashion so I have very special memories of those. I am sure in 5 years people will tell us that f/w 08 (which was one of the best newer seasons) and f/w 11 (which also wasn't entirely bad as some people suggested) are their favorite seasons because it was new and exciting for them.
A thing I also noticed is that summer seasons are usually more boring and in almost every 'best shows of the season'-thread you will find people that say that it was a very bad season or even the worst season ever. People hate when things change and fashion changes really fast.

That's what I wanted to say

Took the season and designers right out of my mouth. YES to Fall 09.
The recession was hitting hard and that particular season, you saw all heavy hitters do what they do best in response to it....

Versace Spring 2007 is what got me interested in fashion to begin with. I know this may sound weird, but when I first started liking fashion, I was afraid to look at anything other than Versace!!! I guess at the time I was too young to understand the abstract beauty of French clothing, so I just stayed away from it all. It wasn't until about Spring 2009 that I started looking at other designers. I wouldn't really GET their clothes at first, but then the next day a switch would go off, and I suddenly GOT it!! That being said, looking back at the collections today, Fall 2007 has to be my favorite season.

I'm sorry, I know that was confusing

Fall/Winter 2008.2009 was such an impeccable season! There were so many memorable collections. Highlights for me are Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte (spiderweb leggings!), Prada (those lace dresses!), Gucci (best collection of Frida Giannini), Givenchy (hello overlapping gold necklaces), Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Alexander McQueen and Versace.
