Jody Claman and her daughter Mia are two of West Vancouver’s most notable socialites who are well-known for their culinary catering and chic fashion businesses. Now, it’s 25 year-old daughter Mia’s turn to take centre stage as she debuted her MIA “Missing In Action” Claman Couture line at their Glass House boutique store in Ambleside late last year. A reality camera crew was on hand to capture all the action as the mother / daughter team welcomed VIP friends and family to a night that delighted all the senses. Look for the reality show to debut in February on the Slice channel.
