Born in Shanxi, China, eclectic designer Miao Ran earned a degree in fashion design at the Politecnico di Milano, and a master’s from NABA where he teaches. With a résumé of work in the worlds of art and theater and the Missoni style department, in 2014 he created Miaoran, a clothing collection for men and women with a functional aesthetic. Gender-bending clothes are distinguished by minimal lines and big volumes in a play of black and white, and light and shadow where geometric cuts adapt to the shape of the male and female body. An unusual blend that mixes Oriental traditions and inspirations with the most classic Italian tailoring.
