At The Jane, An Aiko Family Reunion

-------

On Wednesday, the scene at the Jane hotel was like a family gathering for movie night in the living room. Charlotte Kidd, Lydia Hearst, Aiko designer Cynthia Mittweg, Lily Kwong, and friends gathered to watch the Kidd-directed Aiko Fall 2011 short film, starring Hearst. The gritty short follows a mysterious Hearst throughout various places in Los Angeles, including a grimy motel, as she shows off Mittweg’s designs. “Charlotte was one of the very first people I met in New York, actually,” Kwong, who modeled in Aiko’s recent lookbook, explained. “We met at one of Jamie Johnson’s film premieres and we are still good friends—tonight is a real family affair.” (She also mentioned she and her boyfriend are hard at work on a fashion film of their own. “It will be in a completely new medium than people have seen before, but I can’t share details just yet,” she said.)

For Kidd, last night marked her first official foray into the fashion film arena and she already has her sights set on doing more. “It’s funny, one of my very first internships when I was like 16 was in fashion, and immediately after that I decided I didn’t want to be directly in the industry,” Kidd, who happens to be doing another film with Hearst right now, said. “I think I would definitely like to do more fashion films, for sure.”
