Agenda: Christopher Kane; Douglas Booth; Kapow Comic Con; Martin Creed; Nasty Cute

Fashion: Kane and able

He's been taking inspiration from SodaStreams, and Christopher Kane's prospects certainly couldn't be fizzier: having scooped the British Fashion Council's annual Fashion Fund award, the Scottish prodigy stole the show at London Fashion Week with his granny-chic crochet knits and sequinned sheer dresses adorned with liquid-filled plastic detailing. And lest anyone forget he has the commercial instinct to match his creative nous, today sees the Milan launch of his latest collection for Versace's revitalised diffusion line Versus – kan-ing it, indeed.

Face to watch: Douglas Booth

Douglas Booth More than the sum of his cheekbones, this model-cum-actor stirred nostalgia as an eerily convincing Boy George in Worried About the Boy, and will surely stir hearts as Christopher Isherwood's lover in the BBC's upcoming Christopher and His Kind.

Lexpionage: The F list, n.

The group of feckless celebrities who long ago gave up on promising careers to devote their time to pouting on Fashion Week front rows. Also includes the desperate progeny of genuine stars

App watch: Bump

Bump has come a long way since its birth a couple of years ago. What started as an ingenious way to share phone contacts – simply bump two phones together and the data is synced – now does the same for photos, music and apps, while a text-messaging service allows unlimited texts between fellow bumpers. Free from iTunes store
