Miao Ran was born in ShanXi, China, in 1987 and moved to Milan in 2008 to attend Fashion Design at the Polytechnic and “Istituto Carlo Secoli” where he specialized in pattern making, advanced knitting design and draping techniques.
By 2010 he started working as jewellery and costume designer, collaborating with choreographer Bob Wilson. In 2013 he attended a Master Course in Fashion Design at NABA where he still teaches; he started his eponymous collection of gender-blending clothing in 2014 and he was selected by Vogue Italia for the Who is on Next? Contest for new designers both for his Men’s and Women’s collections in 2015.
In January 2016 he presented his first Men’s collection in Milan and in June he was selected by Giorgio Armani to show in the Teatro Armani.
Eclecticism and multidisciplinarity are his salient features, which allow him to switch from painting to designing with Oriental lightness. His creativity is complemented by an extraordinary sense of pictorial composition and design, completing a style that is conquering the press and buyers all over the world.
